The Westcliffe Contemporary Quilters and Fiber Artists (WCQFA) guild, Westcliffe, Colorado, issued a challenge to its members: To create a 12” x 12” art quilt illustrating our own interpretation of a topic utilizing many aspects of quilting, edging and surface design. The resulting quilts were shown at several galleries and quilt shows.
Topic Word: Sweets.
Just thinking of sinking my teeth into a slice of juicy, red, sweet watermelon made me visualize the total engrossment of a young child doing just that. So there was my subject matter!
Construction: applique and raw-edge applique using cotton fabrics, sheers, fiber pigment/inks.
