Title: "Blues Band"
Medium: Art Quilt
Dimensions: 28" x 21" bound

Spotted on a trip to Burlington, Vermont this band was playing outside a cafe. They were so classic looking, right out of the depression era. I knew I had to put them in a quilt.

This was such a fun project. I used 1930's reproduction prints for the players clothing and the wide borders. Additionally I used paint pencils for some light shading on their skin. I chose blues and denim fabric for their jeans and thread embroidery to bring dimension to the piece.

The borders are fully quilted in a free motion pattern that lends weight to the piece and gives it a finished look. The final binding is done in solid black. All the fabrics, besides the denim, are 100 percent cotton quilters fabrics. The batting is also cotton. The technique used is raw edge applique. There is a sleeve for handing on the back. Original design.
