Quilt / Fibre Art mounted on acrylic painted canvas

Description

This is as Good as it Gets! was the first in a series of framed fibre art pieces created in 2008.  It was originally shown in the ‘Emergence’ group show and feedback encouraged me to start a series for my solo show ‘Story Pictures’ later in the year.

My thanks to Pamela Allen for the inspiration for this series.  I was fortunate to be able to take a course with Pamela earlier that year and under her tutelage my quilt/ fibre art took a turn into a less realistic approach.

This piece was a lot of fun to create and was inspired by my sister’s approaching 60th birthday.  The fabrics used in this piece were mainly from some of her 4-H and high school home-economic course projects.
