Falling Rain

This piece was quilted on my Queen Quilter, a machine purchased with a grant from the Cultural Economy Foundation of Louisiana.  it is machine quilted and machine appliqu├ęd.  The beads represent the falling rain drops.  The next photo shows a closeup.

Quilting Machine

I recently received a grant from the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation to acquire a quilting machine.  This makes it possible for me to machine quilt my large pieces myself.  I am attaching a photo of a red and yellow piece that is incomplete. 

This is the piece after it was finished.  I hand dyed the fabric, machine quilted it, and made fabric beads for embellishment.
