Feeding Time

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2013 

It's time for the Blogger's Spring Quilt Festival.

Please thank the organizer Amy from Amy's Creative Side for all her hard work setting this up and the wonderful sponsers

This year we are allowed to enter two quilts.  My 1st quilt is "Feeding Time." It is entered in the wallhanging category. 

  Feeding Time was inspired by the following haiku poem that I wrote:

young geisha delights
envisioning diamonds and pearls
koi flash and sparkle

 Size: 53 ½" X 41 ½" 

This quilt is my original design.  The background is constructed using curve piecing of batik and some of my hand dyed fabric. The Black outline was cut from whole cloth and fused to fabric and then appliquéd to quilt. Tree branches are made dimensional using trapunto. Cherry blossoms are made of fused fabric and beads.  Some fish are overlaid with angelina fibers.

This entire quilt was constructed and quilted on my home sewing machine.
