Gardening Dreams

Garden quilt

43” x 51 ½ “

Three camellias were picked from our garden by my husband, Jon one spring. After giving them to me, I arranged them in a crystal bowl and photographed them. The blooms were beautiful as nature intended, but curiosity made me want to see how they would look with different colorations.  This quilt is a result of hours of computer color manipulation. I then created Gardening Dreams with commercial cottons, yarns, ribbons and beads. It is “puzzle piece” appliqué and very heavily quilted.

This quilt was accepted to Quilts=Art=Quilts at Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Auburn, New York.  It also had a feature article in American Quilter Magazine spring issue 2005.
