Revisiting winter projects…

Aloha!Entitled “Aloha!”

This 7″x10″ hibiscus was donated to Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA)  for their “2014 SAQA Trunk Show“, an international traveling display. (Click on H and scroll down.) I completed it at the end of 2013 and sent it off in a blur.  I’m glad I took the time to snap a few photos for my own memory.  It is completed with appliqué, embroidery and thread painting.

When I worked on “Hey, Mom”, written about in a previous blog, I also completed “Fall Frenzy: Look out below!”  I needed to revisit the faces and to add some emphasis to the leaves, so it was not complete enough to be accepted into the 2014-4FallFrenzy*PAQA-South ARTS Whimsy display which takes place April 23-June 23 at the Page Walker Art Center.  However, you can see it here and in the Smokey Mountain Quilt Show which occurs in May in Knoxville, TN!  We’ll make a family trip over to Knoxville (about 5 hours away) to view Fall Frenzy, Farm Home, and my daughter’s “sky” quilt – her first attempt at a textile art piece. It shows my grandniece and grandnephew enjoying some frolicking in the leaves last fall.  The textile art was inspired by a photo taken by their mom, Jody.  She posted it on Facebook which made me think it would tell a good story in textile art.  Enjoy!  2014-4FallFrenzy*E  2014-4FallFrenzy*M
