This is original fiber art.The silk was handpainted, then the different elements were appliqued on. The next step was extensive thread painting which adds another layer of color and texture.Custom quilting finishes this art quilt.
The main colors are spring green, pink and fuchsia. It comes mounted on 2" stretcher boards, like a canvas painting, quite striking. With this type of mounting, it adds real presence & drama.

It measures 46 X 27", A large size.

I appliqued each holllyhock on with a wee bit extra batting giving it a slightly trapunto effect -[raised slightly]. The silk reflects color so lumionously, so the painted silk flowers are vibrant and colorful.


As I was working on this art quilt, I thought of little English villages with hollyhocks planted by
almost every colorful front door. It is such a English country look.
With this art quilt, you can have your own English cottage garden. It would compliement many decorating styles; country, shabby chic, romantic, or contemporary., and more.

.This would look at home in your own little cottage!.
