    i'm not sure what this is called, but i like it. it's a beautiful design w/ great color and texture. Signed 'NF'. there's a little written note on the inside of the frame which says 'Garden $85'. The frame is especially beautiful and well-made. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

    thanks!

      I like the vibe and modern feel of it. Do you think it's from the 70s?
    2. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 5 years ago
      Oh, wait, I see that you have it categorized as MDM... I can see that too...

      thank you DrFluffy and Roycroftbooksfromme1! i think it also falls into folk art. the design reminds me very strongly of the 70s flower-power.

      It's a great piece of machine applique and embroidery. I love the fabrics in it - so 60s-70s!

      this is the piece i was referring to on my last post - the quilting book.

      Jean Ray Laury wrote and traveled extensively. Many people worldwide created her designs or pieces in her style over several decades. I'm pretty sure what you have is a piece created by a student or admirer.

      could be cynthiawenslow. she lived pretty close to me here. the frame on this is also really, really nice. the piece looks just like the pieces she was making in 1970.
