Let's all take a moment to say, "WOW"!
This is just a short little blog post to show you some quilty eye-candy! I just wanted to show off this gorgeous elephant art quilt made by Darlene Determan. This is an original art quilt and there is no pattern for sale.
I am a lucky girl. I get to see quilts like this in person when my Mom (the amazingly talented Kristy of Wolf Creek Quilting) is quilting them.
Maker / Artist: Darlene Determan
Quilting: Thread Painting by Kristy Wolf
Size: 20" wide by 68" tall
Style: Art quilt created by cutting individual pieces of scraps and layering them with glue
Amazing-ness: Off the Charts!
Thanks for stopping by to oooh and ahhh with me!
Really stunning and unique — and what a compliment to your mom that the artist entrusted her with such a work of art!

Woah! I can’t imagine how that’s even done.
Reminds me of the quilt that just won a big art competition in Grand Rapids, MI:
WOW is right. What a beautiful piece. I love the idea of using glue to place them, then quilting everything….these women have such talent. Thank you so much for sharing – and inspiring!!

This is stunning. I’m writing to ask permission to reproduce this quilt as a hooked rug. It would NOT be for resale purposes; for my pleasure only. Can you please let me know whom to contact?
