   FLORAL QUILT, AN ART QUILT


  Floral Quilt is a fabric painting with images of flowers.

  • This work was the source of considerable frustration to me in its artistic development. Unable to complete the overall design to my satisfaction, I cut it up into smaller segments, each a separate small composition. Almost magically, the parts began to integrate themselves into a pleasing whole.
  • The fabric painting, cut and rearranged, was placed on a large fabric backing.
  • After it was assembled, the entire piece was then quilted.
  • All aspects of the design for this piece were first drawn by hand and then hand-painted.
  • Size: 28.5" x 30.5".
  • Date: 2000.
  • Sold.
