This art quilt of two pears was created for a Quilting Arts Magazine Readers Challenge - "From Sketch to Art Quilt". It was one of the quilts chosen as a finalist, and was published in the June/July 2012 edition of the magazine.

I love the complex curves of pears, and their chartreuse color is one of my favorites. I purchased the lumpiest Bartlett pears I could find for my still life sketch, and lit them from the side to highlight their interesting shapes.

For my art quilt, I created the pears by gluing fabric scraps to a base fabric, then stitching around the various fabrics with matching thread. I fused the pear units and the shadows to the pieced background, and outlined the pears with a zigzag stitch in black thread to mimic the look of the felt marker in the sketch.

The finished size is 10 x 8 inches. A 1.5 inch sleeve is sewn to the back so the quilt can be hung from a dowel.

I also have note cards available with the image of this quilt
