Iris on the Rocks Bead Embellished Art Quilt 17x22


"Iris on the Rocks" Bead embellished Art Quilt 17"x22".
This art quilt began with the central panel of fabric painted in earthy, rock and mud colors on cotton. I stitched many tucks into it and added various yarns and fibers for the rock-like texture. The green leaf sections are acrylic paints on canvas fabric. The dark batik fabric beside the rocky section reminds me of tree bark. The Iris flower photo is printed on silk.

Freemotion quilting and hand stitching with various threads adds more texture and defines rocks and leaves. To add even more interest, I embellished the rocky areas with various glass and gemstone chip beads. The fibers and beads remind me of the crumbling rocks and mossy growths in the rocky outcroppings along many roadsides. There are a couple gold tone butterflies and a silver tone ladybug hiding in the rocks, also.

The piece has a sleeve on the back for hanging, and is signed by the artist.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This is the first of my "On the Rocks" series of Art Quilts.
