The Blue House, Art Piece 115

Way back in August, 2014 I was on a mission to transform an ugly quilt top into something beautiful. The center of the quilt top contained a block with a blue house. The blue house was my biggest obstacle.

The Blue House Renovation

After carefully disassembling the multiple borders and harvesting the blue house I began the process of its reincarnation. Over an extended period of time a number of new art quilts were created. This project titled The Blue House, Art Piece # 115 was one of them.

The Blue House, Art Piece # 115

Upon close inspection, of the above photo, you will notice where some of the fragments were incorporated. Securing those sections together were angled strips of fabric. Added for embellishment were several buttons, a teal floral rick rack, as well as machine and hand quilting. A gray binding was added to all four edges. On the back is a blue cotton print fabric, a fabric hanging sleeve and a label containing identifying information.

I am very proud to add this early experiment in ugly block transformation to my portfolio. Thank you for being present.

With warm wishes for a wonderful day!
