Pear Art Quilt

For my July art quilt group meeting the assignment was to make the pear quilt in the book "Art Quilt Workbook" by Jane Davila and Elin Waterston, but to use a color different than a typical pear (yellow or green). I made my pear in orange. It was a good exercise in selecting fabrics to make the shadows on the pear. It was a fun project to do. Mom


  1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Frank.

  2. I have just started quilting, so I have a much better appreciation for this than I did before! Wow! I can't believe how perfectly spaced your quilted lines around the pear are! I'm a complete mess with the darning foot at this point. I took an online class on free motion quilting and I got a lot of good pointers, but my darning looks more like a drawing by a 3-year-old! I have completed a quilt top that I was planning on quilting with the darning foot, but I'm so terrified I'll ruin it! Anyway... enough blabbing. Just thought I would let you know that I can now truly see how much hard work and talent went into this!
