Rose Allen is part of a collaborative group of art quilters in the Twin Cities who enjoy support, friendship and a lifelong passion for quilting. Rose started quilting many years ago but feels that she found her place when she began to design her quilts from her own sense of creativity.

This series of three small art quilts called November, focus on thread painting and show how that abstract technique can be used as the focal point of the design. In these three pieces, the thread painting (actual quilting) depict the bare branches of bushes in November.


Here’s the second in the series of three small quilts by Rose Allen.
