Blue Angel (2009), Jean M. Judd, Textile ArtistThis is the fifth in a series of quilts featuring a hand cross stitched center medallion panel created by textile artist Jean M. Judd. Complementary and compatible fabrics are selected and then heavily hand stitched to create each piece.

The fine, hand quilting complements the overall design of the piece. The yellow triangles and black frame draws your attention to the blue Angel and the blue borders draw out more of the colors in her dress. A muted Oriental print is incorporated between the gold flecked blue fabric.

The hand quilting design in the burgundy and black swirled border gives this piece it’s finishing touch. The final border looks like rumpled satin.

Hummingbirds in Flowers (2004), Jean M. Judd, Textile ArtistThe back of the wall hanging is covered traditionally, with unbleached muslin and is signed and dated by the quilter.

The quilting stitches are heirloom-quality and greatly enhance the overall design of the piece. The hand quilting of the hummingbird silhouettes in the black border gives this piece its finishing touch.

The hand quilting was done to complement the hummingbirds in the cross stitched center panel. A wonderful floral patterned fabric as well as a muted Oriental print is incorporated around the hummingbirds giving the illusion that they are suspended in an Oriental flower garden.

This is the second quilt in a series of quilts utilizing a hand cross stitched panel as the center medallion. For a brief video discussing the artistic process, you can visit YouTube.
