My “first” ART QUILT – MONTANA TREASURE

MarveLes Art Studios Art and Collage Quilts, Blogs 1 Comment

Well, this was “the one” that started as a bit of a confidence booster for me.  I knew I needed to challenge myself to create my own, original quilt… “from my own mind” so-to-speak… something…anything!  So I began with a whole cloth – a batik – in earthtone colors, and just began experimenting with couching, bobbin play, paintstiks, metal leaf and a few blocks of leftover patchwork.  It took me all summer – the summer of 2009.  It was my first try at a curvy binding, too.  I was absolutely THRILLED to have it accepted into an Exhibition at Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art here in Great Falls that same fall.
