This is a quilt which few people have seen. I have never exhibited it because it was sold right off my design wall within hours after I finished it.
The center section was painted with Procion dye. Fabric paint was applied over the dyed painted fabric to emphasize the shapes.
The fabric I used for the border was left from a larger piece I had dyed for another project. I was able to blur the division between center and border by carefully cutting the border so the colors blended together.
It is machine quilted. I used an iridescent thread to quilt lines to define the shapes.
Each section was then quilted with a unique design to emphasize the shape.
By clicking on either photo you can see a close up and the detail of some of the quilting.
