Doodle Bird 1
24” x 34”
Painted fabric by Pam Levenhagen, quilted by Joanie Zeier Poole
The second quilt created by two friends; Pam Levenhagen painted the fabric and Joanie quilted this piece inspired by an original painting by Pam. The colorful surface is filled with tiny quilted motifs that at times follow the painted images and others just fill in empty spaces. Joanie quilted plants and flowers in the center of the quilt that flow into the border. She used her home sewing machine to quilt the entire background with tiny flowers, bugs and spirals in several colors of thread.
Fabrics chosen were all Radiance by Robert Kaufman, Wool batting and many colors of silk thread were used for the quilting. Joanie used her regular sewing machine and the technique of refined free-motion quilting to complete the piece.
