Finish It Up Friday ~ Twofer

I finished up both of these art quilts this week. It has been so much fun getting back into improv.

Daughter #3 suggested adding some embroidery to this. I had already been thinking of adding some hand quilting, so this is what I ended up with.

I love how the directional weave of the fabrics adds interest l

Loving that texture.

And here is the second piece. I think this is my favorite of the two.

This photo really shows the texture of the quilting.

I need names, so if you have any great ideas, let me know in the comments!

Have a great day!

    I’m not good at finding great names for quilts 😉 Both are beautiful, I love the added embroidery too, and how you played with the strippy fabric.

  3. Both of these are such fun – the addition of the embroidery was brilliant! My improv pieces usually name themselves, so maybe just spend a bit more time looking at them and see what they tell you?

    I really like both. Maybe call the second one, “No Boundaries” because it looks like fences that do not form an enclosure. I am looking forward to summer when I will not be subbing at school and will have time to enjoy quilting. I love small projects and I’d like to try some small “art” pieces. My mother and sister are both artists (on canvas)…maybe, I’ll be the artist on fabric. LOL.
