My little quilt titled “Sharing the Bounty” came back home today after traveling for the last year with the 2008 Breaking Traditions charitable exhibit. Lynn took very good care of the art quilts while they traveled. My tribute was to the thousands of people who generously give of their time, talents, money and excess garden crops to help feed the hungry people in our country. Let there be no mistake, there are millions of hungry families and individuals right in our own backyard.
The quilt is 12 x 12 inches and is done in rusted fabrics. Mother earth was accented with brown pigma pen. Each of the leaves is sheer silk and has the name of a food stuff written across it. It has tan colored tulle covering it to hold it down for the free motion machine stitching.

Very nice! Did you rust the fabric yourself?
This was some of the first fabric I rusted and put into an iron skillet to get the grey tones. Thanks!
Happy New Year, Other O Janice! Why did I not know about your blog before? I love it! Your work is of course beautiful. And I just knew were kin – thrift shops are among my favorite places. The curtains are spectacular. And that egg contraption! OMG – I have to have one. I can think of a thousand uses. Smooches to you and those adorable babies. Happy healthy creative 2010!
