Amethyst Dream-Starburst is a mini-art quilt featuring a spiral and a metal beaded starburst on a complex cloth background. It is from my Amethyst Dream series and is a one of a kind piece. I will make no more exactly like this one.

This piece measures 6 inches square. The fibers hang down from the bottom edge of the piece an additional 1 to 5 inches. I really like the interest and movement that this gives the piece.

The spiral was cut from a piece of handmade fabric paper. This is an art quilting technique using fabric and a variety of paper materials which are bonded together in a special process creating a fabric paper. I chose shades of purples, grays and silver when making the fabric paper. I added designs with silver ink in a spiral style on the paper as well. I appliquéd it in place using a straight stitch and purple variegated thread.

The starburst style beaded accent in the bottom left corner was hand sewn using a variety of silver metal beads. The long metal beads have a slight curve to them which give the feel that the starburst is coming forward which is a neat effect.

The complex cloth in the background of this piece is a unique purple woven fabric I created by weaving strips of textured fabrics and ribbons together in a variety of purple hues. I stitched the weaving together with variegated purple thread creating a new piece of original fabric. I used satins, metallics, velvets and cottons as well as a variety of ribbons and yarns in creating the woven fabric.

The piece is bound with variegated thread using a blanket stitch. This can easily be mounted in a shadow box type frame for a beautiful gift of original hand crafted art. It can also hang as is and I would be happy to attach a small plastic ring to the back as a courtesy to you. Just convo me in the note to seller section at checkout.

The back of the piece is made using a dotted purple print. There is plenty of room on the back for you to write a personal message to the recipient using a fabric marker or pen. I’ve done this with other pieces for birthdays, baby showers and anniversaries. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate life’s special occasions.

The back is titled “Amethyst Dream-Starburst” and is initialed at the bottom.

I love to give art quilts as gifts with a small note written on the back. Original artwork with your own personal touch!

Enjoy!
