Two guitars art quilt

I love creating quilts, throwing bits of fabric on the wall and standing back to see what it is becoming. I challenge myself during the piecing process, because even though it can be difficult and frustrating, it is like a puzzle, and I like to figure it out.

Final stitches are completed on this quilt — the things I delay the most – binding, sleeve, label.

Quilting can be fascinating as well — seeing the texture appear on the face of the quilt — and how the movement can enhance the design. There are moments that are difficult — when the thread keeps breaking or I discover a problem — but the result is so worth it, it keeps me going.

maybe I’m just hoping the quilt fairies will visit my studio in the night …

For me, the hardest part is the last few bits, when it’s time to hand stitch the binding, the sleeve, and the label! You’d think after all that work, I would want to finish! But at this point, my quilt usually goes on the shelf to wait until a deadline arrives and I HAVE to get it done. Or maybe I’m just hoping the quilt fairies will visit my studio in the night and finish them for me!

  1. Your work is all album- cover worthy, Sharon.
    Maybe we can work something out when I finish my long overdue debut album!

    Hope you’re doing well!

    1. Steve, are you serious!!!???? Tell me you are working on an album. I would be HONORED to make art for you. And I would love to hear you playing again. Damn, I would love to sing with you! Maybe just in a living room, not on a stage. I’m a little (a lot) rusty! It’s been tooooo long. 🎤
