Pod of Life

42" w x 60"L

2014

 

I hand painted this design onto a silk Habotai 16 mm fabric using Jacquard Red Label dyes. After steam setting I quilted it with silk thread, a wool batt and commercial backing using two layers as a thickness.

The design for this quilt was various photoshopped images and a sense of humor. To make a quilt more fun, I like to "add" hidden images within the quilt. This time I added the frogs in and around the pod area.

This quilt was a finalist in the Houston International Quilt show in 2014.
