"Black and Gold Dream"- Mixed Media Art Quilt with Pansies Sunprint- 7.25"x 12"

This Mixed Media Art Quilt was made in response to an online challenge. The challenge was to use metal in a piece. I wanted to use one of my newest sunprints done with black paint, and accent it with gold metallic fabric and a gold bow. This particular piece wasn't the one I had originally planned to create. When beginning construction, I grabbed the wrong sunprint to use, and didn't realize it until I was quilting with the gold metallic thread. I did finish both pieces, using a narrower gold ribbon for the bow on this piece to fit better with the more delicate foliage and flowers in this sunprint. Three gold metallic butterfly beads- one medium and two tiny ones, were stitched to flit just above the flowers. The word DREAM consists of metal letter charms stitched on the gold side area.

Hand guided machine quilting is done in gold metallic thread to accent the details of the leaves and flower centers, while clear thread was used to outline them in the composition. The piece is bound with a suede-like black yarn couched to the edges.

This quilt would look great displayed by mounting it to a pre-stretched artist canvas, or mounted to mat board and framed so the edges will show. It could even be pinned to the wall as it is, the choice is yours.

This One-Of-A-Kind art piece would be a great gift for a nature lover, or be a nice addition to your own home decorating. It looks great by itself or with another in the series as shown in the last photo.
