Art Quilt Star Wonky Purple Blue, Quilted Wall Hanging
Art Quilts by Sharon: Wonky purple star. This listing links you to my shop on Etsy where you can see all that I have available for purchase. Click on the Shop on Etsy button to get there. If this quilt has been sold, contact me about the possibility of making a similar one for you.
This wonky purple star art quilt has uneven star points and a wonky constructed star center. There are several different pastel fabrics used for background to the star points, used somewhat randomly resulting in a background shape in different sizes for each quarter of the star. The quilt stitching is a variety of free motion designs. On the star itself there is some outline stitching and some design stitching. For the background piecing between the star points you will find elaborate free motion designs which continue through the pastel pieces into the dark purple background extending the star design motif. The fabrics are unique and beautiful in a variety of purples and blues. This is an art quilt with vibrant colors which are softened by the pastel background colors. It would be a dynamic quilt for a home office or business office, a bathroom, a small bedroom, a hallway or a porch. Place it where the bright colors greet you in the morning!
Size: 21.5″H x 21″W
I design and create contemporary wall quilts using modern fabrics, vibrant color combinations, and wonky, non-block-like construction and design. Quilts are machine pieced and machine quilted using primarily free motion quilting, no programmed stitching. The quilt stitching enhances the design and gives it depth and character. Quilts may be conceptualized on paper but are often created on my design board. All quilts are ready to hang with dowels or rings attached to the upper back. Modern quilting is limitless in design, color and quilt stitching motifs. I offer the option of custom quilts of my designs in different colors or sizes. My art is really painting with fabric and thread.
I am a lifelong sewer, following my mother and grandmother but relatively new to quilting, having just started in 2010. I live in central Pennsylvania where the mere idea of contemporary quilting is foreign to most folks. When I show and tell with other quilters, they are very respectful and express kind words but can’t seem to wrap their heads around quilts without patches and corners matching and borders all the same width, following traditional patterns. It takes awhile for them to figure out even how I put my quilts together!
I suggest you use a minimally damp cloth and periodically wipe dust off the quilts, about every 2-3 months. No other care should be needed for many years of enjoyment.
Custom and personalized orders
I am very happy to make custom orders of my designs in different colors or sizes. However my biggest size is 40″ X 60″. Pricing is based on square feet size of the quilt.
I ship from Mifflinburg, PA using USPS priority mail. Customers are provided tracking numbers and should expect delivery within 3-4 days from ship date except for international orders which take significantly longer.

ART QUILTS BY SHARON
I am a quilt artist, creating contemporary, wonky and fun art quilts to decorate you home or office walls. My designs range from soft colorful curves and circles to abstract landscapes and flowers to funky geometrics. You WILL find bright colors, creative piecing, and a wide variety of free motion stitching in my quilts. You won't find traditional blocks! In fact, I rarely design with straight lines. All my wall art quilts are pieced on my residential sewing machine and I do all my own free motion quilt stitching on the same machine....not a long arm and not programmed. For me, the design and creation of the quilt "top" is only half of the artistic process. The quilt stitching enhances the designs and enriches the art quilt with texture and depth. Enjoy my shop!! Quilts shown in the Artizan Market are available for purchase through my shop on Etsy which you can easily go to through links in this shop. I also create custom quilts in most any of my designs in larger or smaller sizes or different color combinations.
