Art With Fabric Blog Hop & Day 143 A Block A Day Challenge

"Welcome Hummingbirds" 
Mounted on black panel 12 " X 24 " panel board. 
Thank you Alida for inviting me to participate in the Art With Fabric Blog Hop
along with many other wonderful artists.  Be sure to check it out.
Inspiration
Living in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina,
inspiration abounds. I especially enjoy purple Coneflowers
for their sweet fragrance and purple color that attract humming birds 
and that they showcase their beauty all Summer in our area.
When seeking particular inspiration for the Art With Fabric Blog Hop,
I looked around Pinterest for "traditional" art  and 
came across Marni Maree's beautiful watercolor. 
And since I had previously begun a Mini series of flowers, 
I chose to combine ideas of the Blog Hop theme and my Mini Flower Series. 
Marni Maree WATERCOLOR
Construction 
Creating with improvisational piecing by hand or machine
from my batik remnants is my sweet spot so 
combining various blue batik remnants seemed natural.  
Blue batik remnants from the 
Queen sized bed quilt that I am also currently hand quilting
began the process. 
 Mixing various patterns and shades of blue batik fabric gave motion to my composition.
 Additions of hand stamping overlays and screen fibers gave the element of surprise and texture that I was seeking. 
Coneflowers in purple batik fabric were hand cut then fused 
as were the free hand cut green batik stems and leaves. 
Hand embroidered screen fiber binding further relates to the Mini Flower Series,
I was pleased with this addition.
Others in my Flower Mini Series

First in the Mini Flower Series was this
bold orange flower piece that began as an assignment of an
online art course. You can read more about it  here.

I knew after creating a similar composition using a bold
orange flower, that I wanted  to make another one with happy yellow flowers. 
You can read more about it here.
This series will be in my Etsy Shop for sale. 
Thanks for checking out my Fiber Art.  Enjoy the Art With Fabric Blog Hop

Yellow Flower Trio - Day 142 A Block A Day Challenge


No automatic alt text available.
I knew after creating a similar composition using a bold
orange flower, that I wanted  to make another one with happy yellow flowers. 
This Yellow Flower Trio all batik fabrics and is 
mounted on a 12" X 24" black wood panel. 
I'm seeking a fun name for it - suggestions?

I doubt it can be detected where the aqua thread ran out and the light blue thread began in the purple section of this circular spiral quilted Free Style Cobblestone Block for Day 142 A Block A Day Challenge. Since I have only used what I had on hand, it was great to find some useful threads in a bag gifted me recently from a friend who was cleaning out their supplies.
