Today’s we are featuring two beautiful simple quilts both by Ann Stewart. Both feature bold splashes of favorite colors complemented perfectly by modern hand quilting. And, the only main “tool” that this quilter uses in this intricate hand quilting is a needle. Read on as Ann tells us a little more about these works of art and her approach to quilting.
In Ann’s Own Words:
My main tool with hand quilting is my size 12 Prym quilting needle. I do not use a quilting frame but developed my own way of quilting. That also describes me as a quilter. I like to do things by experimenting. I get my inspiration from my heart. I look at my favorite magazines (not quilting magazines, but mainly modern furniture) and sometimes just see a quilt in it. Sometimes it’s just the colors that inspire me.
All I really want to do is to make someone else happy with my quilts. I am happiest when someone wants to take my quilt home.
I did not name these quilts. Only a poem on the back to give encouragement to my sister and expression of the purpose of the quilt (her husband could continue to keep her warm through the use of his shirts).
