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 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!
