Blue Doodlebug II

Fiber Wall Hanging

Created by Cindy Grisdela
"Blue Doodlebug II" is part of a series of small pieces that explore stripes and texture in an abstract landscape format. The stripes are designed in a calming cool blue and purple color palette. If you look more closely, you'll see a variety of different textures stitched freehand into the piece--square spirals, ribbon candy, lollipop trees, and lozenges. Mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging. The piece can also sit on a shelf or bookcase if space is at a premium.

Grisdela creates all her work in her home studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually on her sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no computer program and no marking ahead of time-just the artist drawing the designs using needle and thread.

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