Nutritious Bouquet

by Nita Markos

Hillsboro, Illinois


Tinted, painted, appliquéd, raw-edge appliquéd, machine quilted, paper pieced

Design Source:

Inspired by the “Good for You” theme. My signature style was developed by experimenting with new ideas.

Artist Statement:

“After completing Delicious Bouquet for the “Good for You” challenge, Nutritious Bouquet followed. While painting fruit at a friend’s house, I couldn’t help but do a painting of two beautiful squash from her garden. More vegetables followed. I used acrylic paint to tint white background fabric with intense colors radiating from the center, where I placed the nutritious bouquet in its copper vase.
