Reaching to the Sun Quilt by Juli Seydell Johnson


This is an Embellishment exhibit piece. Available to pick up or have shipped after January 5, 2024.

Artist Statement: This piece began as a very basic quilt. When done, it was pretty, but didn’t feel “finished.” I was inspired to transform the quilt after painting in the Telemark style in a workshop with Nancy Schmidt. My own designed embellishment for this quilt flowed quickly after a weekend of painting and it grew into a vibrant interpretation of flowers growing toward the sun.

I am an artist who primarily works with textiles. My art is often inspired by nature and everyday activities. I like to make bold interpretations of what I see. I use fun colors that brighten a space and make people smile. I started taking rosemaling classes in 2019 to connect to my Norwegian heritage. The colors, shapes, and techniques have added a new and exciting dimension to my textile work.

Dimensions: h 75 ½” x w 78”

Materials: cotton fabric piecing, applique, quilting
