Lunch at the Club: A Quilt

I was invited to participate in the "An Artful Deck" a number of years ago.  I was looking at the "deck" a couple of days ago and I thought I'd share my piece of artwork with you.  This project was the brainchild of patsy Monk.  You can learn more about patsy and the project on her website.

Each artist was invited to create a quilted card from their usual art medium.  I drew the 5 of Clubs.  Can you find them?  (See below)  All the cards measured 18w x 28H - making a very eye catching display.  The exhibit travelled around the country for approximately 2 years.
"Lunch at the Club" (2004)
Answer: (sǝɥɔıʍpuɐs qnןɔ 2 puɐ ɐpos qnןɔ 'qnןɔ ʎɹʇunoɔ 'qnןɔ ɟןob)

This quilt is machine pieced, hand and machine appliqued, free motion machine quilted.  The waitress' face, bottle, glass and sandwiches were scanned into my computer and ink jet printed on cotton, enhanced with paint, stitched in place.  The beading and other embellishments were sewn by hand.   

Thank you for visiting my Pink Saturday blog!

Such a creative mind and talent to be able to use fabric as your canvas. I am knocked over.

Happy Pink Saturday.

This is wonderful!!I didn't know you did a card for 'The Artful Deck' -- our little group in NQG - Outside the Block - is working on this idea this year. Our format is a little smaller but the same idea. I'm going to share this with the other 'Blockheads' !!

Wow--would be cool to see it in person!! ps. I also made sock monkeys for all of our family one Christmas. Most didn't have buttons for eyes since we have little ones around, but Minkey had to have some buttons for flare!

That's an amazing piece! LOL..I kept looking for the 5 of clubs card, at first thinking it was in the waitress's pocket. Then I saw your upside answer. (how did you do that by the way?)...what a dummy I am! So glad you stopped by The Vintage Nest....Lynn
