Locally Grown: the FUM Fiber Art show

This show opens at a luncheon where the quilts will be introduce by their makers. The story of the quilt, that is, it's inspiration, it's intent, it's techniques, will be presented. It is the 11th annual quilt show in this venue. Many have been inspired by a book. In this case, Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is the jumping off point.

Here is your invitation to attend.

My quilt is fourth from the left. I will show it to you after the show opens.

What's Next: March

The exhibit at the Architectural heritage Center continued in March with new work. I chose to continue the Wind Turbine theme but use a different technique.

This work was created in Photoshop with images that I have taken.They were combined in many ways. The background was created using many layers of color and PS tools, blended until it captured the mood I was trying to create. The work was separated in part and printed by Spoonflower.

I reassembled these, quilted them and then used chalks to highlight areas as needed.
It is a process that I really enjoy and have other works that I will share on this blog in later posts.
