"Yellow Springs Yarn Bomb," art is 4" x 6" in a 7" x 9" (exterior measurements) frame, made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 9, Challenge 1: Hometown Proud, Jan. 2018 in Yellow Springs, Ohio
Challenge recap for "Hometown Proud":
Be inspired by the best of you community – what makes your town special?
There are a lot of things that make our little village of Yellow Springs special, but what makes it special to me is the amount of art:
- art galleries
- artist co-ops (including Village Artisans, which I'm a member of)
- an arts council
- restaurants that display art on a rotating basis
- the Sunrise Cafe with murals that covers all of their interior walls
To create this piece I fused some brown pieces of fabric (the tree) to a hand dyed blue background then I did zigzag stitches (as wide as my machine would go) to make the "yarn" on the tree. I probably spent more time changing the thread and bobbin colors than I did sewing the yarn.
Then I did a small free motion meander quilting around the tree and put it in a cool wood frame.
In the photo at the top of the page, the two ceramic pieces were made by other Yellow Springs artists. The pot on the left was made by Geno Luketic and the little bird was made by Carol Culbertson.
