Genevieve Guadalupe – Nature #1


In my first nature quilt we are going macro in the realm of the creatures of the Sonoran desert.

Materials and technique: cotton fabrics (commercial and hand dyed), cotton batting, poly thread. Machine pieced background, raw edge applique scorpion, machine quilted.


  1. I love it! The use of colour in contrast to the scorpion adds menace to the creature. Great work!

  2. Stunning, just detail in the stitching especially around all those applique pieces. A Double bravo.
