"All the Colors" and "Sunrise" at the Springfield Museum of Art's Annual Members' Juried Exhibition

"All the Colors," 43" x 43"

This is my newest art quilt. It came about because there were many batik triangle pieces left over from another project. Each triangle is 2-1/4" tall and if I sewed them together with a 1/4" seam, they'd end up pretty small.

Instead of being pieced together, the 200 triangles were laid on the black background and rearranged many, many times until I was happy with their placement. The triangles were sewn down during the quilting process. Each piece was sewn down three times but they don't lay completely flat, as you can tell from the side view (below).

I'm really happy with the way it came out and I like how the triangles tend to curl, which makes them feel more organic.

"Sunrise" fabric mosaic, 14" x 11", made by Pam Geisel, March 2008

I made this fabric mosaic back in March of 2008. It has small pieces of fabric arranged, covered with tulle, quilted in place, then framed.

This close up shows the tulle and the stitching which was done in different colors.

More about Sunrise.
