Sweets 12” x 12” art quilt (quilt guild challenge) 2013.

Price: $350

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.
