Whimsical Trike Art Quilt, Childrens Cycle, Quilted Wall Hanging, Kids Bike, Fiber Art. Original Design, Childs Room Decor, Sally Manke Art
Stroll back in time with this quilted interpretation of a tricycle. This is the perfect gift for such a wide range of folks: childhood memories, children’s rooms, schools and community centers. The flowers add a bit of whimsy for the French Country enthusiasts. Or maybe it’s the perfect gift to give yourself…it would be ideal for an office or your home. This is my original design so you will have a one and only.
Designed over an eclectic piece background featuring soft gray and ecru prints, this original design flows. A Flying Geese quilting block creates the big front wheel in bright orange, greens and yellows. The center spokes feature 8 different prints that show movement with color and texture. Bright green fabric creates the frame and fenders while seat and handlebars add more bright colors to the mix. Orange back wheels have subtle hand stitched spokes.
Baskets created of woven fabric strips are on both the back and front of the trike. They are filled with flowers that add dimension and interest to the bike. Look at the fun details like birds, butterflies and glittery adornments at the end of the handlebars. Modern horizontal and vertical quilting adds depth and texture to the work.
This wall hanging would be perfectly at home in a classroom, bike shop, kids room, modern city dwelling or rustic country cottage. Note the extra details such as precise bike spokes stitching and woven front basket that make this a true collector piece.
