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.
When I think of water, I think of fish and the life that lives in water. I had fun creating the goldfish. The reused upholstery fabric reminded me of water. I thought it would be fun to create words out of water (the clear caulk).
Construction: reused upholstery fabric, sheers, decorative fabric, cottons, trapunto applique, applique, clear caulk, cotton and polyester thread, permanent ink.
