Pears and Grapes on a Table 1913
Interpretation by Texies
First row, from left: Kristin, Cordula, Edith, and Christiane. Second row, from left: Erika, Birgit, Susanne, and Elke.
Here they are — all the Texies Sliced Quilt project parts. Mine still needs some more stitching since I don’t like how poofy the non-shadow parts look. When I finish my part all I need to do is sew them all together and bind it. We’re thinking about sending it to Quilt Festival in Birmingham, UK. The deadline isn’t until May, so I don’t see any problems. As I had hoped, everyone has interpreted their part a bit differently and there’s a nice variety of techniques. One of my favorite parts is how the commercial fabric Erika used for the wood in the lower left corner has a very similar color and feel to Edith’s oil stick version in the lower right corner.
Some of my other favorite bits:
Cordula‘s use of plaid fabric for the woven seat:
Edith’s shiny green silk:
Christiane‘s hand quilting:
Erika’s luminous knife and wood” fabric:
Birgit‘s ultra-dimensional cloth:
Susanne‘s excellent machine quilting:
