Precious Desert Oasis

Precious Desert Oasis

The 2020 - 2021 drought here in Arizona has finally broken. Here, I imagine the joy of the tiniest creatures to finding the first raindrops, their tiny oasis. I used Derwent Inktense pencil and Tsukineko ink to create the water drops. 27 inches wide x 41 inches long July 2021 Photo by Stacie Moats $800

This is a fun quilt where I experimented with graphical shapes. I sprinkled ribbons of the traditional Flying Geese quilt block in the background and foreground. Photo by Stacie Moats 30 inches wide x 48 inches long Jan 2021 $500

Pond Lilies

Pond Lilies

I found these water lilies during a tour of the Denver Botannical Gardens. The morning sun lit up the interior of those blossoms, lighting up the flower from within. Photo by Mark Hollingsworth 30 inches wide x 34 inches long April 2018 $350

Mr. Squirrel is Guarding the Hen House

Mr. Squirrel is Guarding the Hen House

I found this little squirrel with the impossibly long tail during a sightseeing trip to Golden, Colorado. He was stationed on the chicken wire above a coop, stealing a meal. Photo by Mark Hollingsworth 35 inches wide x 65 inches long May 2018 $800

Horizon

Horizon

This is a piece where I play with the traditional Drunkard's Path quilt block. Rearranging the block shapes invokes a 2-dimensional image of mysterious structures. The sky dominates the background. In this case, the sky is a "Supernova" pattern fabric with beaded accents. For this quilt, I used Swarovski and glass seed beads for the "comet" that shines in the dark.
