Ring of Peace

Now finished except for label: Ring of Peace, my newest trapunto quilt.

Ring of Peace, 13" x 13", 2008.

Batiste wholecloth top over cutaway batting, fuchsia felt, and regular batting. Quilted on Gammill Longarm machine. Quilted motifs tinted with Tsukineko inks and colored pencils. Embellished with hot-fix crystals, seed beads, and a double row of variegated fibers. Bound with hand-dyed silk ribbon.

I decide to make the roses look a bit like the popular Peace Rose, which features subtle pink and yellow tones on white petals.

I hope that Ring of Peace is a subtle reminder of my wishes for world peace.

The rose wreath was designed by Julie Mullin of Apex, North Carolina, and is included in her Earthlines: Flowers collection of patterns.

Isn't this a great poster? See more information about the auction on the Capital Quilters Guild website. They are also raffling an "Opportunity Quilt" with very personable kitty cats.
