A Quilt of Many Colors

This piece is titled Exuberance because of the riot of bright colors. I enjoyed the entire process of creating this quilt. 

It started with a piece of hand painted fabric. I really gave myself a challenge choosing such a multicolored background. It called for more bold color and lots of contrasts to make the design pop.
 Each step of the process was fun. The most time consuming but enjoyable part was the hand embroidery. Hours of satin stitch, french knots and seed stitches. With all the hand stitch complete, the next steps were quilting and binding.

This art quilt was created using a quilting method created by Carol Ann Waugh. Check out her online course (affiliate linkStupendous Stitching at Craftsy and make your own!
