Floral Explosion

I have finished my latest art quilt - Floral Explosion. This grew out a fat quarter that fascinated me. I collected some fabrics that worked with it and went from there. After a brief respite while I contemplated thread work and quilting, I resumed work on it and have been progressing all summer. I kept wanting to call the piece Explosion but somehow wanted flowers or forest acknowledged. This morning the title, Floral Explosion, seemed just right.

Comments are most welcome!

Here is some detail on it.:


  1. Really beautiful! I think the name suits the quilt very well.

    Have you also found the wonderful things quilters are making and sharing at Great links!

  2. Wonderful colors and movement! It does feel explosive. I like the how blue tones create a balancing quality on the edges. Well done!

  3. Thank you both very much. I just found your comments. I will check out too.

  4. Very interesting piece Judy. I particularly like the way you have used lines of different thickness in the quilting. The different quilting designs and density of quilting all add lots of visual interest.

  5. I love all the color in this piece. You did a great job using the quilting to highlight the fabrics.
