chakra series

Machine quilted texture on the quilt back!

The Chakra commission quilt that I have been working on for far too long is finally finished! I laid it out on my bed so I could remove the lint from it and I just had to take some photos and a short video too!

The sun was shining in and really highlighting the beautiful texture of the machine quilting. It also brought out all the subtle changes in colour of the hand dyed fabrics.

The machine stitching has made the quilt, perfect for snuggling under. It has enough quilting to soften the lap sized quilt but not too much to make it stiff.

It has been an honour to have been asked to reinterpret my Modern Chakra Quilt into a functional quilt. It’s been fun to create it using all of my hand dyed fabrics.

Chakra series note cards

I am happy to be making my series of Chakra quilts available on blank note cards. Photographs of my art quilts are mounted on heavy weight card stock with matching envelope. 

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel of light. These spinning centres of vitality move energy up through our bodies keeping our physical, spiritual, and emotional selves in harmony. 

Danielle's chakra quilt wallhanging blue figure on green and turquoise background by toronto ontario artist doris leeDanielle’s Quilt was the first chakra quilt I designed and made for my sister-in-law whose body was out of alignment – she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Each chakra is appliqued in the colours and symbols associated with that area of the body.

The Chakra Quilt above was a commissioned piece. It is the largest in this series at 90″ by 105″. I love the flames of orange and red behind the seated figure!

Simplifying the chakra symbols into their most basic elements, I used hand dyed fabrics to create Modern Mosaic Chakra.

Each blank note card is 12.7 cm x 17.8 cm (5″ x 7″) and comes with an envelope. This Chakra series of cards as well as the Flora & Fauna series are available in my shop.
