Blogger's Quilt Festival Waterfall Return

Welcome Bloggers Quilt Festival Visitors!



I made this quilt for my daughter's 8th grade graduation
and it follows the design she created in a 6th grade art class on
Frank Lloyd Wright's style.
Her painting shown below represents a
Frank Lloyd Wright style waterfall
which she intended as a quilt pattern.
This quilt encompasses both my love of nature in quilts, and
my interest in abstraction in them as well.
The tonal fabrics read as solids, which
seem to be my current mode of choice for fabrics.
I have a new quilt planned in this format in greens, called
Garden Gate - stay tuned!Posted by Picasa

  10. Great job. To take her drawing (which I can't believe was from a 6th grader)(don't even think I could draw that good) and make a quilt from it. Stunning. I just think that you two make a very talented and creative pair

  12. Oh, I like this post ! How wonderful to have the quilt and the original painting together !
    I have quilt drawings from my daughter's childhood, and they were colored in with markers, so they need fabrics that read like solid, also. You may have just inspired me to get to work on one of those designs !
    Thank you for sharing this work. Would love to see how the greens turn out.
