The Whistler House Museum of art recently had their "quiltscapes" show. My quilt "Chris' barn" won the Whistler award. Thanks folks! This was great recognition. I did the quilt "plein air' - in the style of the impressionists - on site at my friend's farm. ( that is why if you look close you can probably find both seeds and mosquito carcasses!). I put down all the fabrics, and then later (in the studio) added the stitching.
I love doing this, and have another one from this sumer under way. There is nothing better than looking at the actual scene when you are creating a landscape. it reflects the atmosphere and mood - not just the objects! ( just ask onet about haystacks!)
Sooner or later I will get some of my quilts added for sale on quilt2day.com... time, need time!!!
