I photographed this quilt on my deck where shadows from the trees affected some of the colors. I will get new/additional photos soon.
Glory measures 35 by 45 inches.
Again with the circle theme. I made this quilt in the summer of 2010. This flag quilt ‘Glory” was an attempt to create a flag made of circles but still maintaining the stripes.
I used several red, cream/white fabrics, and blue that would make a bold statement. One of the main fabrics is the one with the Gettysburg Address written on it. And signed by Abe Lincoln. I have added a spattering of beads and quilted it with beautiful rayon thread.
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 beautiful heavy weight drapery fabric in a damask pattern that gives the quilt a luxurious weight that regular quilts don’t have.
Picture will go here.
