Christine Cetrulo made 2 quilts using gradients. Mother Earth is a wholecloth and Forever Cancelled uses the gradient as a fiery sky background.
You already know that Patricia Caldwell is a very prolific artist. This particular piece is one of my favorites. I know it had a name but I don't remember what it was. But this was one of the first quilts that she shared with me and I still regret not purchasing it. She used the Blue Sky gradient for the background.
Another artist that uses a lot of Blue Sky is Melody Money. She doesn't share her artwork in my customer gallery but you can see her amazing work here.
Leslie McNeil is another prolific artist. She often quilts wholecloth table runners with her beautiful feathers. This one is on the Woodlands Gradient. She also teaches classes and designs patterns using floral fabrics to great imagery. Izaak the Bighorn is made on a background of the Thrive Gradient.
Teresa Myles used the Bay of Campeche gradient as the background for her mermaid.
Miriam Ahladas made The Old Rugged Cross with the Red Sunset gradient. This piece is our transition into tomorrow's post. She used the gradient as the background and as the design elements.
Oldies But Goodies Tutorial
In the Northern Hemisphere August is the perfect time for some sun printing. Last year I dyed about 10 yards of fabric that ultimately became my Maine Quilt. If you want to give sun printing a try, I have a tutorial to get you started.
I'm sleeping under my Maine quilt this week.

Thanks for mentioning me with all these beautiful quilts. The quilt was called "The Chickadee Tree". They are all so different and unique!

So many beautiful quilts - wouldn't be able to pick a favourite because they're all special (altho' the chickadees would probably be 'the one' because I love chickadees AND blue!).
