What’s On the Design Wall: A Homecoming

Yesterday my collaborating colleague and long-arm quilter on The Wardrobe Meets the Wall Collection, Betty Anne Guadalupe, unveiled the beautiful work she did on my piece Abandoned Structure, which is based on an abandoned power plant in Central Oregon that I photographed many years ago.

For more on the development of this piece, the story behind it, and the original photo that inspired it, please see the post What’s On the Design Wall: Working Through a New Art Quilt Piece.

Once I got it home I stuck it up on the Design Wall (a sort of homecoming from where it originally was born).  I have not yet trimmed the batting from the edges or put the finish  on the edges, but I am enjoying just looking at the piece as it came off the long-arm quilting machine.

I will post some photo details of the quilting artistry by Betty Anne once I get the edges finished. Betty Anne used the original photo I took of the abandoned power plant to inspired her quilting – she included water textures and structure textures that mimic those in the original photo.

I am excited to add it to our The Wardrobe Meets the Wall Collection of art quilts made from recycled clothing and garment manufacturing scraps.

    This is an amazing piece of art. So glad I got to see it at the meeting. And, your presentation was great, along with being entertaining too! Thank you for the little plug about my facebook page. The reason you couldn’t find my web page, is because (due to my husbands influence) I was persuaded not to use my name, but something more generic. so, it is “bendartquilts.com. Maybe that was a mistake… I don’t know…
    See you at the next SAQA meeting, and I look forward to seeing your future designs.
