Based on Jane Davila's pattern from the QA Gifts 09 issue---i sized it up, used hot colours of my own hand dye, free motion stitched anatomical heart studies and heart symbols, hand embroidering several----combining my love of word play and making something different is my idea of loosening up for some "serious" work--after all, my "interior landscapes" are quite different from everyone else so why shouldn't my fruit be? :}

Love the colors.  I use a great deal of hand dyed fabrics in my art quilts.  I'm fortunate to have a friend in CA who supplies me with wonderful fabrics she dyes.  I love quilts a little over the edge.  Nice job.

Thank you! You can read about the making of this one here.

I have been stockpiling my own dyes for awhile and now am ready to use them; commercial fabrics don't interest me anymore except as a base or to alter.
