Donaleen Kohn wanted to break up the vast amount of white/gray of her fireplace and decided on a fireplace screen.
Her husband made a perfect frame for her from oak using his original design. He attached small dowels at the top and bottom that she used as "curtain rods".
She filled it with 2.5" torn strips of Abundance Gradient. She quilted "straight lines", layering the fabric with Quilter's Dream Select and then hand sewed the strips onto the dowels.
It really brightens up the marble, doesn't it?
If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. In appreciation you will receive a 20% shop coupon that's good for 3 months!
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
