Jazzberry II

Fiber Wall Hanging

Created by Cindy Grisdela
"Jazzberry II" is a cheerful composition of purples, reds, and silver. Three Improv Log Cabin style blocks are the focus, supported by organic curves. Stitching lines add texture with simple horizontal lines to contrast with the curves, and pebbles to draw the eye.

Mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.

Grisdela creates all her work in her studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using her domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just the artist drawing the designs with the machine's needle and thread. Each piece has the artist's signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.

Avoid hanging in direct sunlight. To remove dust, brush lightly with a lint roller.
