Coleus Chorus Quilt from Havested by Maia


Coleus Chorus

$250.00 plus Shipping & Handling

69 X 57 Cotton Quilt

Technique:  Paper piecing/Applique

 

Description: I was walking through a very charming little village where all up and down the sidewalks were the most beautiful Coleus, of all different colors.  It was intense - the colors and the variety of sizes. It was as if they were all shouting out to be noticed. And of course, I couldn't pick only one, because they all had to be heard.







Autumn Sunset Quilt from Havested by Maia


Autumn Sunset (SOLD!)

SOLD
Queen size

Commissioned and Sold

Technique: Paper Pieced / Appliqué

Description: This was created as a specific request to have a tree with its leaves blowing in the wind.  I asked the owner if she would go to the paint store and gather paint samples of the colors she would like to see included and then I had my marching orders for the design and colors.  What fun this was to make, knowing that someone really wanted it.  The last photo included here has the edges folded over to reveal the backing of the quilt.  It is simple random stripes that were created using up all of the leftover fabric, and a bit of golden brown to fill in where there was not enough.  Not pictured here are some pillow shams that were made of dark browns and the dark evening sky to continue the picture when the bed was made.

Description: Several years ago, my husband and I had a landscaper work with us to decorate our yard.  He put in a hedge of Nandina bushes because the leaves are so colorful, almost all year long.  What I didn’t know when these beauties started growing was that the Nandina blooms in the spring, with the tiniest of pink buds the size of half of my pinky finger nail, which then open into the tiniest of flowers that look almost like a jonquil.
