Hint of Blue
Hint of Blue is part of a series of improvisationally pieced wall quilts using a combination of stripes, curves, and contemporary log cabin style blocks. The elements are put together like a puzzle so no two are alike. Vertical stitching lines integrate the composition.
I challenged myself to use an unusual color combination of taupe, dusty rose, beige and brown, adding a touch of turquoise to add a sparkle to the composition.
Materials: cotton fabric, some hand dyed by Cherrywood Fabrics, batting, variegated thread
Size: 24″ x 12″ mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.
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.
Care: Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
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.
