Challenge – Botanic(s)

Although our theme is titled “Botanic(s)”  a truer form of the word “Botanical” (study of plants)  was used by the group in their research and design of their quilts. Some members have used plants native to their regions and countries, but the main goal was to take a plant and depict it in their art quilts. If you click on the thumbnail you will be directed to the “Artist Page” so you can read further about the chosen plant and the techniques used in the art quilt.

About spaceandtimecreativity

I have embarked on a Certificate Course at Distant Stitch, this is exciting as many years ago when I began to find my artistic voice I studied under Jean Lange in Adelaide, South Australia.Jean taught me that anything was possible (well almost) in stitch. Over the years I have done traditional embroidery, moved into other mediums such as quilting (Art Quilts), beading and many other related crafts. My reason for returning to embroidery is my love of stitch, I love the organic feel of stitches and how it adds another level to my Art Quilts, so I wish to explore how stitch can be used in design and finished work. I am now adding another course.....Sketchbook and I am hoping this will encourage me to keep sketchbooks for my Art Quilt projects.
