Diane's second submission to our Quilting Arts 2010 "Fresh Picked" Calendar contest. This piece is entitled (appropriately) "Above and Below."
I love all the depth! Beautiful work!
AMAZING ,AMAZING ,AMAZING
Absolutely amazing! Such depth ad coloring. Love it! Have you read the children's picture book, "Tops and Bottoms"? It is about a group of animals who plant garden vegetables that we eat the tops of or the bottoms of and this reminded me of it as I am a children's librarian.
INCREDIBLE! beautiful, absolutely love it!
How did you keep the leaves from wilting, LOL! They look SO real!
Fabulous! Love the leaves.
I really like the popping colour and the play on texture. Nice.
Really beautiful! Excellent!
Waiting for the dinner invitation Diane Marie, I will bring the salad dressing...!
Superb quilt, the technique is wonderful.
Wonderful! I want to know how you do this!!!
Fantastic. Lifelike. Inspiring as a piece. How did you do it???
This makes me want to eat my veggies! Stunning
Such gorgeous work. Diane's pieces are just wonderful. We need a how to article.
I love those leaves!
I love the leaves and the contrast of the colourful vegetables with the soil. How ever were those leaves done? I certainly would be interested in a how-to article in Quilting Arts on those.
Not only does this need to be in the calendar but we also need to know the techniques used. I am hoping to see articles etc. This is fabulous!
This is my pick for best of show. I do hope you will be doing an article in QA mag to explain how you did the leaves and got such depth.
Outstanding! The best I've seen on this site.
I feel like I'm just adding to the list of superlatives, but this is a wonderful piece! I love the texture, the depth, the colors. The stones are marvellous: there is a message in such abundance springing from rocky soil!
This is stunning and innovative in so many ways.
Absolutely amazing! You are such a talent.
Any chance we could get a commentary on how it was created? it's truly amazing! Trying to come up with another word but amazing fits best!
I love vegetables as a subject and this one is fantastic. I wish I could create such a masterpiece.
absolutely gorgeous work. I love the texture and 3d elements
I could smell the earth! How extraordinarily natural and lovely!!!
The colors, texture and depth are outstanding. It's so rich visually you're just aching to touch it.
This is so realistic I could almost reach out and pick the vegies.
I just keep staring at it, drinking it in. SO FINE!
Lovely detail in the veins in the leaves and also in the roots and rocks. Great work!
I just love this wonderful piece of textile art.
this is amazing!! i just love it. the leaves are incredible too!! i think this one has sold me on this calendar!!
Such a delectable use of colour and texture.
Vibrant! Love the depth. This quilt really pops!
Your three-dimensionality is stunning. How did you edge the leaves?
Your three dimensionality is stunning! Would you mind sharing your techniques for the rounded pebbles and the free-standing leaves? How did you edge the leaves? Stunning work.
Stunning work! Would you mind sharing your technique for the dimensionality in the pebbles and the freestanding leaves? How did you edge the leaves?
This is beautifull. Amazing details.
I love the dimensionality of the leaves and the pebbles in the ground. Were the leaves added on separately, or is the sense of depth created byt tight quilting up next to the leaves? I'd love to see a detail pic.
