The Painter

We hope that 2021 is treating you well so far. This portrait quilt by Lenore Crawford inspires us to dream about going to a real (not virtual) quilt show again, in person, in the near future.  We wish you good health and happy quilting..

The Painter by Lenore Crawford

This stunning art quilt was inspired by a photo Lenore Crawford took of working artists in Paris. The colors and detail she achieved transports the viewer right into the scene.  Lenore used her raw edge fusing technique to create the piece, along with a little fabric paint to add fine detail and shading.  The row of paintings were depicted with fabric.

Lenore Crawford lives in Midland, Michigan, and The Painter was featured in the Midland Daily News last year. You can see more of Lenore Crawford's work, plus wonderful creative quilt patterns at her site on Etsy.
