While I try to be as joyful as possible, every now and then someone or something makes you mad as hell. I had such a day in mind when I created my quilted wallhanging “I Am Mad as Hell.”
The creative spark for this quilt comes from the mask panel. He looks mad doesn’t he? From there the quilt evolved with African fabrics, batiks and domestic prints.
“I Am Mad As Hell” measures 42 x52 inches. The dominant color is red. (Of course I was seeing red while I was mad). It is machine pieced and machine quilted on a long arm. The quilting pattern is named “Dragon’s Breath, and it is quilted in red thread.
There is a hanging sleeve on the back of the quilt for easy display and a label that documents the quilt. The fabric on the back is a traditional black and white floral print.
This quilt is one-of-a-kind. I signed it on the front.
