Effervescent Zebra - Quilt of the Week

 "Effervescent Zebra," 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

Are zebras black with white stripes or white with black stripes? This one is black with rainbow colored dots on it. It also uses the Robert Kaufman Effervescence fabric in the "Mardi Gras" colorway. I used some black yarn for the mane and a bead for the eye.


It is wrapped around a small canvas and can hang on a nail or be propped on a shelf.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 9/26/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

Rainbow Heart - Quilt of the Week


"Rainbow Heart," 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

Here is another pieces that uses the rainbow stripe fabric from Timeless Treasures and the Robert Kaufman Effervescence fabric in the "Mardi Gras" colorway. I fussy cut the rainbow stripe so the colors would have the red/orange part around the outside and the other colors would meet in the middle. The horizontal purplish strip is also from the rainbow stripe fabric.


There are four buttons: three are a shiny bluish gray and one is a flat purple on top of one of the gray ones. It is wrapped around a canvas frame.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 8/19/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

"Stitch by Stitch" YS Textile Art Group show at the Winds Cafe in Yellow Springs

Stitch By Stitch: A cross-cultural exploration of contemporary textile and fiber art is presented by eight members of the Yellow Springs Textile Art Group. The members, Corrine Bayraktaroglu, Carol Culbertson, Pam Geisel, Gayle Gyure, Bette Kelley, Macy Reynolds, Sue Rudolf, and Paula Womacks are all local fiber and textile artists who create innovative embroidery, weaving, and art quilts.

You can view the show during the months of Sept. and Oct. at the Winds Cafe, 215 Xenia Ave. in Yellow Springs. Check their website for their updated hours.


Sue's pieces are included posthumously, and there are three pieces that Sue started that Pam finished (Forget-Me-Not, Afterimage, and Relics). Carol, Gayle, Bette, and Paula all created pieces for the optional challenge and they are hanging in the entry way. Corrine again is participating long distance from her new home in Arizona.


Here are four of my pieces (Sunrise Celebration, Time Lapse Moon Rise, Journey, and Cosmic Connectivity) sandwiched between two of Carol's woven pieces with one of Bette's embroideries on the far right.

If 6 Turned Out to Be 9 - Quilt of the Week


"If 6 Turned Out to Be 9," Art: 7" x 5" / Frame: 8.5" x 6.5", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2020

The piece which is a small art quilt in a frame, was design based on the number 6 in the font Jokerman.


I used the blue section on the Robert Kaufman Effervescence Gradation Rainbow fabric. I'd been using a lot of that fabric series in a few different color ways. I couched a dusty purple yarn around the edges. When looking at the center swirl it's hard to decide if the blue is on the purple or if the purple is on the blue.


This piece can hang either horizontally as shown at the top or vertically as shown above, which really makes the number 6 obvious.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 9/12/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

Tweet & Sing! - Quilt(s) of the week(s)

 
"Tweet" and "Sing!", each 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2019

Like the last few Quilt of the Week, these two use the Robert Kaufman, Effervescence fabric (in the "Mardi Gras" colorway) and a Timeless Treasure rainbow stripe fabric. These two are basically the reverse of each other so I'm doing one blog post for two pieces. "Tweet" is the quilt of the week from Aug. 23-29 and "Sing!" is the quilt of the week from Aug. 30-Sept. 5.


Both are wrapped around a canvas frame.

Because these are the Quilt of the Week, they are 10% off the original price of $50... "Tweet" through 8/29/21 and "Sing!" from 8/30/21-9/5/21, if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.

Cat Love - Quilt of the Week

 
"Cat Love," 6" x 6", handmade by Pam Geisel, 2019

I love cats. I have yet to own a white one but artistically, a white cat was a nice contrast to that fabulous Robert Kaufman, Effervescence fabric (in the "Mardi Gras" colorway).


This piece is wrapped around a canvas frame.

Because this is the Quilt of the Week, it is 10% off the original price of $50 through 8/22/21 if you purchase directly from me. Details can be found here.
