“Asian Persimmon”


“Asian Persimmon”
15.5 x 11.5"
Copyright 2023 Susan Brubaker Knapp
White fabric, acrylic textile paint, cotton batting, cotton batting.
Wholecloth painted, free-motion machine quilted.

I took the photo on which this piece is based a long time ago, and have always wanted to make it into an art quilt. I believe I took the photo at a supermarket (the lighting in supermarkets is often quite good for photography, surprisingly!)

"Say Gay" Series

Donate for a chance to win one of my "Say Gay" mini quilts!

The Trevor Project is the leading suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people.

I’m fundraising for them because I believe in their vision to build a world where every LGBTQ young person feels safe, loved, and celebrated. Trevor’s research has found that having at least one accepting adult can reduce an LGBTQ young person’s risk of suicide by 40%.

The Trevor Project provides free, accessible, 24/7 crisis counseling services via phone (TrevorLifeline), instant messenger (TrevorChat), and text (TrevorText) to young LGBTQ people in crisis.

Your generosity will help build a world where all LGBTQ young people see a brighter future for themselves.

Please support my fundraiser by making a donation today.

The mini art quilts in my "Say Gay" series were made in response to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' bills restricting LGBTQ rights, including his "Don't Say Gay Bill." Donate through my fundraiser, and you may win one of them!

On July 31, 2023, I'll draw six names at random from those who contribute through my fundraising page,
Within a week after that, I'll ship the six winners one of the quilts.
Size of each piece is approximately 8" x 7" and each piece will be ready to hang.

Donations of any amount are very welcome. Every bit helps!

Thank you!
