This is one of the pieces I made at Forum, where I took a quilting/mixed media class. My theme was the local fruit and vegetable markets where I did some drawings and took photos before the Forum. This is a textile interpretation of the apron of the green grocer pictured in an earlier sketch on this blog.
10 " high, free-standing.
Painted vliesofix (wunder under), fabric, paper and wall-paper scraps, encased wireform, machine embroidery.

This is interesting, looks like it was fun to make.

Thanks for the comment on my blog, I really appreciate the coaching.
I realized the problem when I was all finished!

Alison - I have one of her books and she is a real inspiration for my textile work. She has a new book coming out very soon (you probably know that) and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! Is she a great tutor?
