Line Drawing

This is a peek at my latest work of art, Still Life with Pitcher. I’ve always loved pottery and pitchers, bouquets of flowers, and drawing. So I decided to combine them all in a quilt. I was inspired by the modern quilt movement and Alex Anderson ( for the strong use of fresh white, and by Joe Cunningham’s ( use of bias tape, and my many still life quilts with bias tape stems called Fresh Cut Flowers. I wanted to go simple and see how I liked all that white and draw with the black. My plan is to sew buttons onto the flowers for added fun and spark. I have a huge collection and I love the whimsy a simple button can add.   —Joyce Robinson
