Santa’s Night-time Trek (2013)

Santa’s Night-time Trek is part of the series Winter Holidays”. In each piece the same holiday ornament shape was used…I experimented with different ways that the same shape might be used to create a scene. Can’t you just imagine the wind blowing around Santa’s sleigh as it soars through the sky!? 🙂

In this Art Quilt, the shape is layered and appliqued to the background. Threadpainting and straight-stitch quilting lines were then added to finish raw edges and suggest the movement of Santa soaring up through-out the night sky on his Christmas Eve journey around the world!
