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.
These fused bookmark landscapes are about 8" x 2.5". Each piece of fabric is layered and fused to a fusible interfacing (craft bond) then backed with fabric, and enclosed in a vinyl sleeve with a tassel attached. Labels are affixed to the back. They are priced at $10 each plus mailing. Since I complete each one individually, no two are exactly alike. If you are interested in purchasing bookmarks please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. They make great gifts!
I choose complimentary fabrics for the backs of each bookmark.
It was when I was working as a social worker that I began quilting. For the last 19 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.
