I just completed two more small quilts for donation to the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative — a great charity that I strongly support since my parents both suffered from Alzheimer’s.
My mother was an avid gardener, a writer of gardening books and an award-winning photographer. While I didn’t inherit her gardening talents, I did start taking photographs at a young age. Both quilts are based on photos that I took of flowers in my back yard. I edited the photos to remove some of the detail, then I had them printed on fabric.
Daylily is about 8 by 6 inches.
Coneflower is about 10.5 by 8.5 inches. I really like this flower because it’s a bit different with its yellow-green tipped petals.
Absolutely stunning Jean! You are such a fabulous thread painting artist!
Thanks Michele (I’m blushing…). One thing I really like about lots of tread painting is that it’s easy to hide your mistakes.
