Abstract Quilt called Three Stars.

  Okay, you guys better be nice to me about this quilt.  It’s doesn’t have a bird, deer or heart in.  It’s a abstract.  I love it and if you make fun of it I will find you and pinch you real hard.

  I am thinking of doing more of these.  It was so freeing.  Just shapes and colors.

 

  The only embroidery is around the stars.  I outlined them with a black blanket stitch.

  This quilt is made of cotton and it totally hand sewn including the quilting.  It measures 20″ x 30″.  You can get really good views of this quilt if you click on the images.

The shapes are based on doddles, and shapes I have found in hex signs.

  2. I really like this very much. The colors, design and stitching all combine so well, it is fun and intriguing. Don’t stop making abstracts! Of course I don’t want you to stop any of the other things you do either, so perhaps you should give up sleeping.

    Coming to your blog always gives me a little creative boost.

    I particularly love the quilting! Successful abstraction can be much more difficult than realism. I’m a huge fan of ALL of your work! Please keep inspiring us through your beautiful work and generous spirit.
