    Art quilt for donation

    Every year our church holds a benefit concert for Amaus Health Clinic. During intermission, there is a raffle. All proceeds from concert and raffle are given to the clinic which serves the economically fragile families of the inner city. This landscape quilt measures 20" X 18" and is based on Karen Eckmeiers technique for creating "accidental" landscapes. I am trying to think of a clever title for the label. Any suggestions?

    What a fantastic art quilt. Could title it serenity.

    When I take a day to myself, I call it a "mental health day," so the first thing I thought when I looked at your landscape quilt was "Shoring up my mental health." It's a wonderful piece.

    That is a great quilt. Your use of rickrack is very unique. Love it.

    Like Watson, I am completely enamored with the breaking wave. Would you share with us how you did the foam? At first glance I thought it might be rickrack I enlarged your pic and it looks to be some sort of crocheted trim that you tacked down where the wave is crashing in on itself. Quite an ingenious use of that. Your use of metallic/holographic thread in the waves is also very effective (can't tell which from the photo). You really put a lot of thought and effort into this. Sorry, no ideas for a name label but I do love your quilt.

    I love every thing about your quilt. I love the quilted clouds. I think I would name it "At Peace" because it is so soothing, calm & peaceful.

    The Guardian. That is what came to mind when I saw your "painting". It is very fun to stare at it.

    Absolutely beautiful quilt. The colors and detail is outstanding right down to the birds flying in the air. I have no clue as to what name you could give the quilt. Just wanted to comment how beautiful it is. I know someone on here will be very helpful and give you a nice name that will just be perfect.

    I think most of usl have experienced the peace that water brings to our lives. The sounds of water flowing or waves breaking on the shore bring a "stillness" and overall calm into our lives. Your "water scene" will bring all that to whomever is lucky enough to hang in their home. Once again you out did yourself...Full disclosure I know Nita and seen all of her works of art and have been gifted some during our friendship and she is a true "Artist" with fabric.

    Fantastic work! What about "My happy place". Although I do like "Serenity" that was suggested as well.

    Even more beautiful than the golf one! I love it. The addition of that ruffled islet trim is a super touch! I'd love to hand this one on a wall in my living room!!

    Very pretty. Serenity would be a perfect name, as some of the others. You are very talented.
