I finished Morning Smoothie a few days before Thanksgiving but just today had a chance to photograph it. It was SO much fun to make and stitch after working on the monstrously huge Earth Stories for nearly four months.
Morning Smoothie was designed for Fiber Shots! the annual fundraiser for San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. Entries will be for sale for $100 with all proceeds from the artwork used to support the museum’s fiber art advocacy efforts. This is a really great way to acquire beautiful fiber art for a song!
Based on the food theme I was inspired by the cut fruit in my daily smoothie. I photographed the kiwi and strawberries and in the end tossed in the blueberries for pop! The background is a screen-printed linen damask napkin from my Keeping Up Appearances series.
My online art class also just ended so I have cleaned off my design table in anticipation of jumping right into new work.
Next up? …two identical pieces in different color ways…stay tuned!
