Locally Grown

locally grown quilt

44.75” x 32”

I wanted a departure from my normal subject matter.

After leafing through many art quilt publications for some inspiration, I took some vegetables from the fridge to create a still life. Finding a red pepper, some Brussels sprouts and two strange looking squash, I put them on a pretty platter. I photographed them from all angles.  After finding the perfect photo, I tweaked it in the computer to make it “quilt able”.

This quilt is made from commercial cottons using my puzzle piecing method and heavily quilted.
