Rhonda Denney - Water

Water 12” x 12” art quilt (quilt guild challenge) (144 sq in=1 sq ft.) 2013


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.
