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.

On the Rocks - my entry for show and tell
I also noticed that The Trend Tex Challenge quilts are now on display Trend Tex Challenge The theme is Sunshine and Vines. It is interesting to see how different quilters used the 5 fabrics (we were allowed to add a couple more). This was my entry.

It was when I was working as a social worker that I began quilting. For the last 20 years I have been creating art quilts, mostly stitched by hand. Recently I have added machine stitching to some of my pieces. I still love hand stitching and create many hand embroidered pieces often with painted backgrounds. I find inspiration in the natural world and there is usually a story behind the inspiration for my pieces.
I now stitch full time and love learning about fibre and exhibiting, and selling my work. I learn from other artists, workshops, quilting magazines and books, fibre arts groups, and friendly challenges.
