Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared and
your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace.
I am part of an art quilt group that is part of my quilting guild; each month we are given a topic and we create a mini quit using different techniques for the following month.The topic for my October/November Art Quilt Group is 'Harvest'. I created this free-standing mini wheat filed that is made from an old butter-yellow linen business suit (I'm cleaning closets!).
I pulled cross grain threads, tied wire to sets of 8 strands and then wrapped the straight of grain threads to create the stalk. The wheat was free-motion quilted on silk and then wired pulled through the back.
I finished by placing wire around the bottom to help it stand up on its own. Can you tell I had fun?
Do you belong to some type of art quilt group? How do they inspire you?
