Purple Cone Flowers Quilted Art - 12 x 24 inches on Cradle Board
"Purple Cone Flowers" is a cheerful Contemporary Textile Purple Cone-flowers that sway on an improvisational pieced blue batik background enhanced by screen fiber and hand embroidery.
While living in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, inspiration abounds however I especially enjoy colorful Cone-flowers for their sweet fragrance, Summer long beauty and purple color that attracts local Hummingbirds.
Creating with improvisational piecing whether by hand or machine from my batik remnants is my sweet spot so combining various blue batik remnants from another project seemed a natural start for the background of this piece.
Additions of hand stamped overlays and screen fibers offer elements of surprise and texture. 3 purple batik Cone-flowers are hand cut and accented by free hand cut green batik stems and leaves.
Machine Quilted & signed by artist.
Mounted on a 12" X 24" black panel. Ready to hang.
