Framed Boxes is an art quilt in a cool blue and purple color scheme with a spark of warm reds. Two borders of curved stripes add interest. I challenged myself to create several small improvisational compositions in warm and cool colors without really knowing what I would do with them. The contrast between the warm reds and cool blues when the finished blocks were laid out spoke to me and inspired this composition. A variety of stitching motifs, including square spirals, fans, and loops add texture and dimension.
Size: 20″ x 16″ – mounted on painted black canvas.
Materials: Cherrywood hand dyed fabrics, variegated thread.
I create all my work in my studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using my domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just me drawing the designs in my head with the machine’s needle and thread.
Each piece has my signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.
Pet free and smoke free environment.
Care: Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
Shipping via USPS or FedEx for a flat $20 fee.
Return policy: Enjoy your new piece in your home or office. If it doesn’t suit your space, let me know and return it to me at your expense within seven days of receipt and I will refund the purchase price.
