Export Quality

That's the name of this little quilt.

I've been home this week with a horrible virus!

I decided to potter in my sewing room. I seem to have the attention span of a flea.

I finally got my head clear enough to make this little quilt. I screen printed the pear, then I painted it and added three little flying pears. Next I freemotion quilted it and finished it with a facing!

It is very small and I thought it needed something to give it a lift.







I mounted it onto a artist canvas! It worked. I painted the canvas black and screen printed two extra flying pears onto the it. I then sewed the quilt to the canvas.





Because it looks like a painting (well I guess it really is a painting), I signed and dated it!


The canvas is 8" x 10" and the little quilt is 5" x 7"

Sorry about your virus, they tend to flatten you for a couple of weeks. I have seen a few little quilts put on canvas and I rather like the way they look. Have to say I think yours looks fabulous!!

Absolutely stunning, Saddle! Great one, this one! Love it!

Hope you get better over the weekend. There is a blank spot across the hall from me that needs filling; very quiet here, you know!

Hope you get over the virus quickly, when I had one earlier this winter it kept me down for 6 weeks. Your Pears are lovely wouldn't change a thing.
