Our local theater, Amelia Community Theatre, is performing "God's Favorite" in August. Hopefully the above pieces are accepted for their lobby art exhibit. The theme is "Temptation." I got the idea of Adam and Eve in my head and couldn't veer from it no matter how hard I tried. I really didn't want to do people so settled on the apple. Both are done using Ellen Lindner's technique double reverse applique for the hand and apples. For the background I adopted the look from my fiber friend, Mary Rhopa. I took that tree workshop from her last week. Many of her backgrounds are small pieces of different fabrics. I decided to use rectangles but I've used organic shapes before. Viewing Mary's quilts brought me back to my stash of commercially printed fabrics.
