ann's quilting corner
It is my good luck to have blank walls in the shop offices to display my art. I have been art quilting for the past 20 years. Hal Burns was my biggest supporter when I was first doing this type of sewing. If any customer showed even the slightest interest, he would take them on a tour of our home (which was behind the shop on those days) to show off my latest projects. If you are a customer at Hal Burns Truck & Equipment Service, please be sure to visit the “shop gallery”.
Also, there are more images to see on my Facebook page. I teach classes (quilting, machine embroidery, mixed media and thread painting) at Santa Fe Quilting (santafequilting.com) and The Sewing Center of Santa Fe (sewingcenterofsantafe.com). These shops are almost next door to each other on Cielo Court and definitely worth a visit when you’re in Santa Fe.
The Edge of a Dream. I made the border first after dreaming about the curved black piecing. It was several months later that I found a pattern and color scheme strong enough to stand up to the border. The blocks are “Free Style Log Cabin”, a class that I teach at Santa Fe Quilting.
Thirteen Ravens. Displayed in the stairwell at Hal Burns Truck and Equipment Service. It’s made in the Many Raven style (butted seams), raw edged appliquéd birds cut out like Henri Matisse who was my inspiration.
Many Ravens. This three panel screen started it all. I developed the class for Santa Fe Quilting and the multitude of ravens on the panels prompted us to adopt the name, This screen has been sold so this picture is my only memory of that quilt. I still teach Many Ravens, but it’s been a long time since any raven graced one of the screens. There is another screen on display at Santa Fe Quilting as well as some other pieces.
