Whispers of Hope
44"x 52" 2007
Proudly displayed at the National Quilt Museum Exhibit, 2017
During Easter week the trees in our neighborhood had burst into bloom and I choose this one to make into a quilt. I had been working the thread work details on some of my quilts and decided that the delicate blossoms on this quilt would be made totally from thread. Hundreds of Swarovski Crystals make it sparkle!
Techniques: Mosaic Picture Piecing background, appliqué, heavy threadwork, Swarovski Crystals
All wall quilts have a "sleeve" attached at the top back for easy hanging using a dowel, or curtain rod.
