This is an art quilt that has been sewn onto a 12" X 24" canvas. I started this quilt by piecing together the sunset background onto muslin. Then I added the branches by sewing wool yarn onto the quilt. I sewed all around the edges of the quilt with the yarn and attached it to the painted canvas. Finally, I painted the spirals onto both the quilt and canvas using Shiva Paintstiks. Canvas depth is about 1 3/8".
This quilt was exciting to make. I've been trying to add texture to my work and the wool yarn gives the quilt a bit of that. I've also been looking for new ways of displaying my work and I find the canvas a wonderful way of doing this.
