Art Quilts

These small quilted projects are all made with the same general technique. I begin with a photo or a sketch that gets transformed into a pattern. A few of the more recent projects began with a commercial pattern from Emily Taylor at Collage Quilter or Maxine Tarsey at Fabric Collage Patterns on Facebook.

When I use a photo, I often browse J.Nuibe.Photography and choose from the many great shots in my grandson’s gallery., with his permission.

I use Lite Steam a Seam 2 to fuse the pieces together on parchment paper and then to the foundation fabric, or I fuse the pieces directly to the foundation fabric, then add quilting, painting, and other embellishments.
