Another Recycled Fabric Art Quilt Sold

Some great news: I was able update the art quilt RECYCLED HOPE III: WINDOWS OF CONVERSATION on my Portfolio page as: “OWNED BY PRIVATE COLLECTOR”!

2020-09-30_20-18-34_802

A month ago I was contacted through my tierneycreates Inquires page by an art consultant in Seattle, Washington who was interested in purchasing this piece for her client.

We worked out the details, I created an invoice and they purchased the piece!

So with this sale, I’ve now sold 11 of my art quilts over the past 5 years (and yes I would be very hungry if I’d tried to live off the sale of art quilts as that averages to 2.2 quilts sold per year – ha!).

The City of Seattle owns four (4) of my art quilts which you can check out on my Portfolio page:

  1. COLOR STORY I: FLYING TRIANGLES
  2. COLOR STORY II: SILK LANDSCAPE
  3. COLOR STORY IV: COLOR CHANGE
  4. COLOR STORY V: ABANDONED WATER STRUCTURE

And the rest of the seven (7) that have sold were purchased by private collectors:

  1. WE WILL NOT BE DISCARDED (not in my Portfolio but you can see a post on it – We Will Not Be Discarded’s Debut; it sold at a show at Twig’s Gallery in Sisters Oregon in 2016)
  2. RECYCLED HOPE I: RECYCLED ROAD
  3. RECYCLED HOPE II: RECYCLED DOOR
  4. RECYCLED HOPE III: WINDOWS OF CONVERSATION
  5. COLOR STORY III: RANDOM NOT SO RANDOM (see post The Great Art Quilt Oops!)
  6. COLOR STORY VI: ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIG – THE VESSEL
  7. COLOR STORY VIII: THE LOUD COLOR SHIFT

There is one more on my Portfolio page that states “owned by private collector” – COLOR STORY VII: IT’S GETTING WARM IN HERE – was actually a gift to my sister, I did not sell it.

Writing this post is serving two purposes for me:

  1. Providing me with an easy reference to see just how many I’ve sold; and
  2. Encouraging me to get back to making art quilts as my portfolio or available art quilts is dwindling!

Hope it did not put you to sleep (smile)!

  1. What I especially like about this quilt is the feature that it has areas of strong contrast, other areas where the color gradient makes it look like it is glowing, and still other areas of soft color. To me, it evokes a sense of welcome!

  2. On the contrary, I did a little dance of joy for you. Congratulations on selling so many quilts and, also, well done on making a list of the sales. It’s important to keep a tally.
    At least making quilts (especially art quilts, wink wink) feeds one’s soul.

  3. This is a beautiful piece, Tierney. I can see why people are purchasing your quilts! You might be hungry if you tried to live off the sales, but you would never be cold.
