Container Garden: Apartment 2R

Container Garden: Apartment 2R
33-1/2″ wide x 40-1/2″ high

Although it is nonrepresentational, Container Garden conjures, for me, a bird’s-eye view of my daughter’s thriving little roof garden in New York City. The composition retains the sharp angles of the city, but its grid is softened, quirky and bursting with color.

Constructed from dyed Osnaberg, a Kaffe Fassett print and artisan-made paper grids, with free-motion quilting on the background fabrics and machine top-stitching on the paper.
