Synchronized Swimming and Pastel Color Study in Fiber Art exhibit at the Pique Galleria in Cincinnati

"Synchrozined Swimming," 22" x 22", made by Pam Geisel, July 2007

I made this art quilt back in July of 2007 using blue fabrics in a variety of shades blended from light to dark. It is pieced and machine quilted.

There is some hand quilting and beads in the four corners that I see as fish jumping out of the pool as if they are doing synchronized swimming.

"Pastel Color Study," 6" x 8", made by Pam Geisel, March 2008

This framed fabric mosaic was made in March of 2008. Pastel rainbow colored fabrics were arranged, covered with tulle, then quilted in place and framed.

This close up photo shows the tulle and the quilting.
