Bouquet II
Artist Statement

This quilt is an untraditional way to present very traditional quilting designs and methods. Nothing I have done is new except the fabric selection and placement. English paper piecing, broderie perse, appliqué, and embellishments, etc., are old techniques. Borrowing from these methods, I have adapted them to my own style. The possibilities are as endless as the individual choices made in the presentation of these quilts. The result of the quiltmaker's efforts is a unique art piece.

The foundation layer of this quilt consists of approximately 1400 three-quarter inch hexagons hand sewn together in the Grandmother's Flower Garden design. Approximately 200 pieces of hand appliqué accent and define the foundation layer. Some of the hand appliqué has been padded to add dimension to the quilt. Hand beading also embellished the quilt. The tassels were made from embroidery floss, gathered and tied. The knife edge border follows the hexagon edge and is finished with close whip stitch to the backing with batting in between. All is hand quilted. Dimensions: 53 by 41 inches (143.6 by 104.1 cm)
