Blooming by the Weathered Fence


29 ½” x 39 ½”

This quilt recreates a very simple photograph of some flowers against an old wooden fence.

The background of the scene is done with piecing. The flower and petal details are “puzzle pieced” appliqué. I wanted a few of the blooms to be more prominent so each petal is quilted separately.  The centers of the flowers are knotted pieces of yarn to give them texture. I utilized commercial cotton fabrics in this piece.

This quilt was honored to be in a PAQA South show.
