MINTCHIP Sold 2011

Mintchip measures 36 X 29 1/2 inches.  SOLD

Mintchip was created from a collection of Bali Batiks that was preselected by the manufacturer and called “Mintchip” because it is composed of mostly mint and chocolate colored fabrics.  I added two additional fabrics that complement this collection.  The mood of this quilt is very earthy and calming.

The larger beads at the center of each square are genuine buffalo hair-pipe horn beads.  There is a scattering of tiny silver beads.  It was quilted in a meander stitch pattern with variegated Sulky brand rayon thread, that changes from gold to salmon and to  green.

I take great pride in my workmanship and this should be evident from the detailed photos.  The binding has been sewn on by machine on the front for a smooth even finish, and then hand sewn on the back to avoid additional stitching adding to the front.  I use high quality materials in creating my one of a kind art quilts.  The quilt is backed with a heavy weight drapery fabric that gives the quilt a luxurious weight.

Many pictures above were taken on my dining room table in full sunlight.  Shadows are evident in some photos.


Fireball II measures 32 X 46 inches.  These pictures appear to be somewhat blurry, but that is mostly a result of using  some fabrics that are watery, without distinct lines.  Lots of batiks.
