Fish Lips’ Bubbles After a Visit to the Pompidou

Jan Aaron

Raw edge fusing, machine quilted. The background fabric for this piece is titled “Fish Lips”, thus the name. The design is an interpretation of a work hanging in the Pompidou, Paris. The colors were chosen to work with the background.

Lattice in Red & Black

Jan Aaron

Machine pieced &machine quilted. I made this in a workshop taught by Jim Pilarski, at the IQI Quilt-In. It was started in 2009 and completed early this year. I chose to quilt overlapping circles all over the surface to soften the sharp edges of the latticing.

Puzzle the Square

Jan Aaron

Machine pieced; machine quilted by Sally Evanshank, Windy City Quilting. I wanted to use blue and brown to make a contemporary quilt. It is a gift for a young friend. She has yet to see or get it. It was chosen to hang in a recent show at the Hinsdale Art Center.

Vevey Pops

Jan Aaron

Fabric printed photographs, hand beaded, machine quilted. The inspiration for this piece is the pictures I took of flower beds along the Lake Geneva walkway in Vevey, Switzerland. These are some of the distinctive poppies that were blooming in the gorgeous beds this past May.
