The Blue Pitcher
12" x 12"
Mary Vinovskis
Ann Arbor, MI

From Mary:  This "The Blue Pitcher" (12" x 12").  Here I was trying for a painterly effect. The inspiration was a photo I took.  I was able to use the small trimmings from a different fusing project to create "paint strokes" on the pieces of fruit.

Mary's quilt "Architectural Abstract" (30" x 36"), was made in response to a challenge to use architecture as a theme and was inspired by Frank Gehry's buildings with their dramatic curving roofs and walls.
