New quilt

"Other Worlds," by Sherrie Spangler  (18" x 45")

I haven't posted much about my art quilts lately, so here's one I just finished a few weeks ago to enter in a juried contest. Earlier posts showed the freshly painted fabric and some of the machine quilting in progress. (click here) I layered swatches of hand-painted silk organza over the background to create more depth of color and texture.

Have a colorful day!

This quilt is so beautiful, hope it was chosen for the show. Also, there's a great article on Gig Harbor in the May issue of Coastal Living, looks like a great place to live.
