Insalata

Insalata

>

When visiting my mother we would often go to a restaurant called Insalata, housed in a building that had been a bank when I was a child.  The chef/owner met the challenge of the enormous ceilings by commissioning oversized artwork of fruits and vegetables scaled to fit the soaring walls.  I loved the persimmons, especially, and remembered it as I made another quilt in my tomatoes series.   As I worked on these salad ingredients, I recalled the flavors of our food and the company of my mother and her friends  as we lunched there. 

Materials:  Artist dyed and  painted fabrics, commercial batiks, poly-wool blend batting, textile paint, Mistyfuse,  crisp interfacing, Superior Threads 40-wt poly and 60-wt poly thread, raffia. 

Techniques:  Dyeing and painting fabric.  Fused collage.  Intensely machine quilted.
