Art with Fabric Blog hop

"Every quilted project is a unique piece of art, full of love, creativity and inspiration.

However, have you ever thought about how "traditional" art could be reinterpreted in a quilted piece?
(by "traditional" I mean anything that a non-quilter will label as art, like paintings, drawings, sculptures, architecture from all countries and all time periods).

To explore the endless possibilities of art-inspired quilted pieces I decided to organize another edition of this Blog Hop!

This edition has a special theme...


When I saw that Alida choose Mother earth as the theme, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Lately I have been attracted by sculptures because it is link to my own work on shades, lights and perspective. 

Enter the Australian Artist, Donna Marcus and her sphere work :)

This piece is called " Steam". I adore the work of light on the sphere shape and used it for my inspiration for my piece


This piece for me, represent Gaia.....the mother that feed and support us against this unforgiving universe. 

For this piece, I used my own "fractured image" technique using shades of blue to represent light and darkness. 

This piece has been FMQ by myself using my Q'nique 14+ mid arm and I used 40 w embroidery threads
