  1. 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.

  2. Waiting for the dinner invitation Diane Marie, I will bring the salad dressing…!

    Superb quilt, the technique is wonderful.


  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Stunning work!  Would you mind sharing your technique for the dimensionality in the pebbles and the freestanding leaves?  How did you edge the leaves?

  9. 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.
