Cindy Grisdela Art Quilts


Mocha Swirl is part of a series of small quiltlets featuring an improvisational center block and asymmetrical borders. It’s perfect to add color and texture to a small space or even stand on a bookcase.

Stitching lines add texture with an echoing spiral design using variegated thread.

Size: 8″ x 8″ mounted on painted black canvas with a wire on the back for easy hanging.

Materials: cotton fabric, batting, variegated thread

I create all my work in my studio overlooking a lake in Reston, VA. Each wall hanging is quilted individually using my domestic home sewing machine. The designs are stitched freehand, with no marking ahead of time and no computer program, just me drawing the designs in my head with the machine’s needle and thread.

Each piece has my signature stitched into the front in an unobtrusive spot.

Smoke free environment.

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