Juanita Sauve Art Quilts: With fabric and paints I capture landscapes, people and ideas, designing colourful, one-of-a-kind hand-stitched wall hangings. Inspiration is everywhere around us. My work tells a story - about me, about my world, and my ideas and values.
My online quilting class has been posted on the Quilting Weekly website. It consists of step by step directions complete with lots of photos and a pattern to create a landscape quilt. I am posting my completed piece here so you can get a look at it. If you are interested in learning more or purchasing the lessons you can go to the Quilting Weekly site. I have posted the address in my favourite links at right. I have also posted a logo but it's not linking to the site directly. Maybe I made an error?
Here is the original photo that inspired this piece. It's from Cape Breton Island, Canada.

For the last 22 years I have been creating original fibre art, both hand and machine stitched. I create many hand embroidered pieces often with painted or felted backgrounds. I find inspiration in the natural world, in personal and political themes and from my imagination, and there is usually a story behind my pieces.
Small art, fibre art jewelry, journals, postcards, hoop art and ornaments are a big part of my fibre art journey.
I stitch full time and love learning about fibre and exhibiting, presenting to Guilds and selling my work. I learn from other artists, workshops, books, and fibre arts groups.
When I am not stitching I am spending time outdoors, writing songs and singing with our band, Local Colour.
