Sunset Swirls

I belong to a small Art Quilt group that gets together once a month. Our hostess last month provided us with oil paint sticks and textured plates to make fabric rubbings. I made this rubbing on white cloth. She challenged us to make the rubbing into an art quilt. I took mine home and colored between the swirls with colored pencils to look like a sunset, so I created my background in this way. I then traced these plants from a sketch done by Pam Holland. I used permanent fine point pen. I then quilted with black thread on the lines of the plants. I made French knots to emphasize the little berries.
