2009 http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/ 2009 Anime Garden 21"W x 20"L $500 I am fascinated by the dichotomy between elegant simplicity and cutsey-ness in Japanese art and popular culture. "Anime Garden" combines Pokemon characters with a garden of fabric and Zen-like hand stitching. http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176415411 176415411 Apron Quilt (front) AKA "My Mom Wasn't Much of a Cook" 25"W x 38"L x 2"D $1200 Many people have fond memories of their mother's home-cooking. Well, what if your mother wasn't much of a cook? Not poisonous or revolting meals, just not very daring or imaginative. This piece uses photos from 1950s - 1960s women's magazines to show the "alternatives" available to mothers who didn't quite measure up to the culinary ideals of the times. http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176415407 176415407 Apron Quilt (back) AKA "My Mom Wasn't Much of a Cook" 25"W x 38"L x 2"D $1200 Many people have fond memories of their mother's home-cooking.

His grandfather, Frank Sabathe, lead a fascinating life in the Southern California desert. My quilt illustrates a few of his achievements. The historical society of Twenty-Nine Palms, CA, plans to paint a mural is his honor. http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176415412 176415412 Paradise 24" x 19.5" $500 The original meaning of the word "paradise" is "a walled garden". My husband and I love to spend time in our small, but intensely planted garden. It gives us fruit, flowers, and serenity, and truly is a "paradise". http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176569534 176569534 The Only Prayer (Both) Large Banner:- 24"W x 45"L Small Banner:- 15"W x 31"L $700 http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=177345733 177345733 The Only Prayer (Large) 24"W x 45"L $700 (both) http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=177345945 177345945 The Only Prayer (Small) 15"W x 31"L $700 (both) http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=177345946 177345946 Turkish Garden 14"W x 15.5"L $360 http://lindalaird-studio.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=176416561 176416561
