Salimugundi is part of a series based on a large improvisationally designed block set asymmetrically in a rectangular space. Putting colors together intuitively, I use fabric the way a painter might use paint to engage viewers from a distance, yet invite a closer look.
The negative space is broken up with narrow insets to add interest to the composition. Stitching lines add texture in the plain areas using a variety of motifs, including fans, spirals and paisleys.
This design includes several of my favorite improv blocks–including Improv Circles, Insets and Improv Blocks–so I named it after a composed salad that was popular at one of my favorite restaurants in college. Plus it has a cool sound to it!
Size: 20″ x 16″ mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.
I create all my work in my studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using my domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just me drawing the designs in my head with the machine’s needle and thread.
Each piece has my signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.
Pet free and smoke free environment.
Care: Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
Return policy: Enjoy your new piece in your home or office. If it doesn’t suit your space, let me know and return it to me at your expense within seven days of receipt and I will refund the purchase price.
