Our son got married last month at a local vineyard. We love her so much, and are so happy for them. It was quite a celebration....happy families and friends, beautiful venue. I slept for two days!
I did some quilting for the event, and realized how much I'd missed that medium. Last week, I was working in our garden and was struck dumb by the variety of flowers we grow. Sweet william, lantana, marigolds, morning glories, and my bold and brassy zinnias. All different, but a part of the overall garden.
I began thinking "what if my art included quilting? The vessels, lamps and window panels are made from fiber, and fabric is too. No? And I love making these "petite" quilts - only 3x3. They come with a wee easel, and are great for shelves, desks, and....wherever! And by "quilts", I don't mean the kind you snuggle in! Art quilts....full of beading.
Some of the petites and the art quilts are in Asheville's River Arts District at Eco-Depot Marketplace. Stop by and see the new additions and other pieces of fiber art!
