"Pear" Quilt

This is a picture of my latest creation. I used the painted fabric (Setacolor) for the pear. Then, I used some acrylic paint to add a few highlights. I wanted this piece to be a bit nostalgic, thus the check print at the bottom. The border fabric is by Lake House. I also have it in green and I really like the whimsical look of the print. The size is 8 1/2" x 11". I may be into a series of "pears" now. I think I will try a techno one next.
It is 102 degrees here in the DC area today and our upstairs air conditioner went out. It is now thankfully repaired.

The pear is really beautiful. Your stitching is so perfect. It was 103 here today and 105 yesterday. Thankfully, we've had no air conditioning problems (knock on wood!). Glad to hear your until has been repaired.
PS Are you going to the "Textiles of Klimt" exhibit at the Textile Museum in DC? I'm hoping to have a reason to go north and see it.
