Illustration Friday - "Stitch"

Once again, the completion of a long-delayed art piece and an appropriate Illustration Friday topic have fortuitously collided! I started doodling around on this mini-quilt more than a year ago, but just yesterday finished appliquing, machine-quilting, and hand-binding it. It is part of a series I had conceived of quilt blocks based on memories of my summers at my grandparents' farm. I have 2 others already started. So, I hope fabric art isn't against the I.F. rules, but that's what I'm doing lately...

Looks scrumptious, and wonderful for the topic this week!

I really like this. May I have a slice? I think a fresh-baked pie must be a memory all of us have of our grandparents' farm, don't you?
Lovely!

Really terrific! And I just saw the movie "Waitress" which is FULL of pies.

Very cute! Some of that fabric looks familiar :P And, art is art, even with fabric. I am sure some mothers would say that the food that their kids smear is bent towards artsy.

This is wonderful! My but you are multi-talented. BTW, I am sure that fabric is not "against the rules" of IF. What rules? It's a bunch of artists, remember? ;-)

Your quilt looks very yummy!

The cake I posted was just a joke and when the website I linked to no longer had the picture I just deleted it. I may have to find it again even though I was getting some very interesting reactions to it. Just a joke though! Glad to get a comment from you :)
