BEACHED…On Tomales Bay 24″ by 36″

There is an old abandoned tugboat, beached on Tomales Bay. For years it has served as a landmark for us as we walk from our Bay lodging to breakfast in the little town of Inverness, California. As we set out, our first sighting is the old Russian style edifice – the same as always. A little further on we can spot glimpses of the village. A few more steps – and there it is – the old tugboat; full of history, of beauty, of dreams.

This was a fun quilt to make.  I had no idea what I was going to end up with when I began; impromptu all the way.
The center background is pieced; the appliques are cut freehand, fused and machine stitched.  The writing is done with freehand machine stitching.  It is heavily quilted and hand beaded.
This quilt measures 8 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches

  1. I’d love to be able to do what you do. But I’m a quilter and my art comes in blocks. Love looking at your quilts!

    1. Ronni Kahn – That’s how I started – as a quilter! I’m glad that I did because there are occasional technical issues in my art that I need to deal with. It helps that I already have the know-how, for instance, to sew a Y-seam. (the dreaded Y-seam)lol. There are lots of ways to approach art quilting. If you love color, for instance, do a collage to honor you favorite color – throw in a tiny bit of the complementary color to zing it up! How does it look to you? There are NO RULES in art quilting. Don’t think things like- “Is this the right way?” If it pleases your eye finish up the edges with your favorite method, add a hanging sleeve to the back, ADD a LABEL with the date, your name, title of the piece AT LEAST and you are finished making your first art quilt. Have FUN!
