Contentment


Contentment, 2011
This quilt came together effortlessly, inspired by contemplating contentment.  The center section's sun image was printed (with yeses) on my ink jet, then cut and appliqued to background before getting threadpainted. The white ends were pieced on adding more thread painting and fabric paint. Orange strips were pieced to center section, and more applique details fused on.  Machine quilting added the final touches.
