The Westcliffe Contemporary Quilters and Fiber Artists (WCQFA) guild, Westcliffe, Colorado, issued a challenge to its members: To create a 12” x 12” art quilt illustrating our own interpretation of a topic utilizing many aspects of quilting, edging and surface design. The resulting quilts were shown at several galleries and quilt shows.
Topic Word: Spirit
Actually, I chose the fabric for this piece before I ever came up with what would go on top. I love the colors and movement in this fabric; the spirit of the fabric talked to me! I chose the quote to augment the piece and decorated the word “Spirit” so that it would stand out.
Construction: dyed fabric, sheers, dimensional paint, fabric paint/ink, cotton and polyester thread.
