‘Dorothy’s Quinces’


My Mother-in-law grows these wonderful fruit from which we make jelly and paste. This is a piece I have done using a raw edge/confetti technique. Each tiny little piece of fabric in the quinces and leaves were hand cut and glued on one piece at a time. I tried to pay attention to the tones of the fabric to achieve the correct forms fo the fruit. The work was free-motion sketched in variegated threads. I was pleased to try out a quilting design called ‘McTavishing’. It was a great design to fill and improvise around elements. The botanical text was done using a freezer paper stencil and ‘Shiva sticks’. This work will be on display (and for sale) in the Nathalia Art Windows (The G.R.A.I.N store) from December 2013 to early Jan 2014.
