Sunflower Blues: Inspired by Van Gogh’s Sunflower painting, I chose one nearly expired flower to challenge my creativity for this quilt. The flower was cut freehand and applied using raw edge applique methods to an organically pieced substrate. The composition was highlighted with various colored threads, two tone fringe and fabric dust made from the scrap fabrics. The piece measures 20 inches square.
Eco Elegance: A fabric collage that features an original designed and quilted substrate of embroidered silk in green and off-white. The eco printed cloth that hangs on the left is contact printed with eucalyptus, cranberries, rose leaves and marigold petals. This mono print sidepiece is made of raw silk in contrast to the embroidered silk of the background. The piece is embellished with hexagon shapes and seed pods. It measures 19.5 inches wide and 28.5 inches long and is ready to hang from the lilac branch. 1/17
