Whether the details are made up of piecing, applique, or quilted lines, they will draw the viewer in for that all important second look. In this case, I have chosen curvy lines that fill in an invisible circle. The fabric used in this piece is Robert Kaufman Radiance silk/cotton blend. The sheen of the fabric is enlivened by the rise and fall of the fabric due to the quilting stitches.
The completed piece is a another of my art quilts that combine abstract and realistic elements from nature. The simple design leaves room to add depth through the quilting. "Standing on the North Shore" is currently on exhibit at the Wisconsin Visual Artists' Guild Cattails and Flowers show at the Reaching New Heights Gallery, Marshfield Clinic-Weston Center.
