Thursday, October 2, was the opening for the most recent art exhibit that had one of my pieces included in the show. The reception was wonderful and very well attended, and this is the piece I had in the show:
It was started in a class I took with Ellen Lindner. This quilt was constructed by tearing my snow dyed fabric into rectangles, then rearranging them to create areas of light and dark across the surface. An accent color was added to guide the viewer’s eye towards the light, and I machine embroidered free motion lacy leaves, then appliqued them to the quilt. Machine quilting echoes the rectangular shape of the background fabric to add another layer of interest.
If you get a chance to visit the show, it will be hanging till the end of the month, and the address is:
Casa Larga Vineyards
