Concord Grapes--Art Quilt

Concord Grapes, Art Quilt, 5" x 7")

This is one of two 5" x 7" artworks I donated to the "Postcards from the Ledge" event in Asheville, North Carolina. The other artwork is a colored pencil painting titled "Pear to be Different." On October 5, each postcard artwork will be sold to benefit the Asheville Public Art Program. Identities of the artists are kept anonymous until the artwork is purchased. The organizers want people to buy artwork based on what they see and what they like instead of who the artist is. Interesting concept.

This is an original design. It's machine appliqued, machine quilted, and embellished with (what else?) Swarovski crystals.
