There seems to be a number of different opinions on what an art quilt is - does anyone agree?! - and I hope that this qualifies simply by not being abstract and/or geometrical. This quilt was made for the blogging quilt group Four in Art - we post quilts quarterly which we have made to a theme chosen by members. The theme for the quarter in which I made this quilt was 'purple passion' and was part of this year's concentration on the wider theme of 'colour'. I chose to make a quilt representing anemones in shot cottons in the red/blue/purple spectrum.
The background is made of tiny pieces of different low volume fabrics quilted into place with close lines, the jug is pieced, and the anemones and leaves are appliqued.
The centres and stamens of the flowers are embroidered with french knots.

I'm grateful that we have this chance to join in and to visit and enjoy so many different makers' works. Thank you Amy!
