Scraps collected off the floor an area quilt shop were used to create this confetti quilt! After cutting batik quilt kits this generous shop owner shared her "trash" with me. She challenged me to create a wall hanging from the throw-always. This quilt was the result.
Thousands of pieces batik fabric are confetti cut then “painted” on quilt backing and batting. Fussy cut trees trunks were added before covering quilt with tulle. Machine quilting w/invisible thread is completed to hold all those tiny pieces in place. Additional quilting is then completed with a large variety of traditional and metallic quilting threads to add texture and depth.
The depth of color and texture created with this technique make it my favorite form of fiber art. This original fiber art wall hanging was created from a photo I took on the Chestnut Hill Loop at Arcadia Dunes on near Arcadia, Michigan where I am a trail volunteer.
This makes a perfect wall accent or gift for up north friends loving friends.
25" x 20" (insert a dowel & hang with provided hanging tabs)
Made in my smoke-free, pet free home studio.
