Historic Perspective


41” x 32”

While in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina one spring day I was mesmerized by this simple scene.  The turquoise against the white siding was my first attraction. 
I was there at the perfect time of year to see the tree behind the house in full glorious bloom! I had to photograph this from every angle.

This quilt is a result of one of those photos.  It is completely pieced with commercial cotton fabrics.  The blooms on the tree are appliquéd fabric snippets. The quilting in the border is clear monofilament thread and continues the scene to the edge of this piece.  One has to look very closely to notice this feature of the quilt.
This quilt was accepted to Quilts=Art=Quilts at Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center Auburn, New York
