Molten Sea (Sorry, I'm SOLD)

I have felt inspired for this textile after viewing photos of my daughter, Teresa's, photos of the active valcaano in Hawaii. I call it the Molten Sea. It is my idea of what the ocean might look as molten lave pours into is from a volcano. I used 4 fabrics and Ricky Tim's Harmonic Convergence idea to accomplish this look. I have added lot of original ideas and fabric to give you the feel of the ocean.

This textile was accepted in a show at Waverly House Gifts & Gallery to run form November 4, 2011 to December 17, 2011. The show is "Journeys" and will benefit A Sporting Chance.

I have not been a complete flake this summer. I have been doing a few Art Quilts worth posting on my blog. I have not felt especially creative so I have been using other Quilt Artist as an inspiration. This wonderful bright orange Pod Grass is inspired by an article in Quilting Arts Magazine by Laura Wasiloski. She calls it Zen Doodle Quilts. I had lots of fun freely creating flowing lines and circles to quilt around.

This lovely cone flower is from a class I took from Ruth Powers. I had lots of fun in the class and finally finished it today. I have cone flowers in my back yard and I can say they look like this so I am very happy with this pattern. I hope you enjoy it also.
