Folk Art Meets Free Motion; 82 Inches of Domestic Freedom
Joanie Zeier Poole 
82” x 82”
2014

The machine pieced and hand appliqued top was inspired by the Buttermilk Farm Quilt by Teri Christopherson of Black Mountain Quilts, ©1998. This quilt demonstrates the impact that learning free-motion quilting had on this 15 year old quilt top. Joanie created original quilting motifs and textures to fill the plain spaces of the top with reined free-motion quilting. What began as a simple folk art was transformed into an elegant piece of art with intricate quilting designs and textures quilted in 178 hours on a domestic sewing machine. 

The materials used were cotton fabrics, Legacy Wool Batting, Silk Thread by Superior and YLI and The Bottom Line Thread by Superior Threads.
