Yesterday I dropped of my QAK Challenge quilt for the Food, Food, Glorious Food exhibit.
I wanted this quilt to represent the color and abundance of fresh produce. I chose to arrange the food in a color wheel, showcasing the richness of colors found in nature.
The quilt itself is whole cloth with appliqued fruits and vegetables. Each food was created by cutting out small bits of fabric and stitching them to a main shape. The basic shapes were placed on fabric and covered in tulle. I quilted around each shape to attach them. Finally, I added details with quilting and thread work.
