This week's inspiration comes from quilt artist and painter, Miriam Ahladas. She used the Red Sunset and Barrier Island gradients in her piece.
"The quilt was inspired by a beautiful purple and pink sunrise after an early morning shower. The sun warmed a new day as undulating wheat danced and sparkled in the field at the edge of my yard. I stood in awe of our life-sustaining earth. The colors of the fabrics and embellishments represent fire, earth, and water. Feathers represent birds soaring on wind currents. My Norwegian roots and a recent study of the Saami, the indigenous reindeer herders of the North, inspired most of the quilting."
For sharing, Miriam received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
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.
