"Petri Dish Promenade"
by Susan Brubaker Knapp (2010)
19" x 34"

Cotton and cotton/silk fabric, threads, commercial and hand-dyed cotton and silk embroidery flosses and threads. The central panel was soy-wax batiked, then hand embroidered before it was reverse appliqued into the hand-dyed cotton/silk border. After additional hand embroidery, the entire piece was machine quilted.

This is beautiful! I'm wondering how you made such perfect circles :)

I used a glass to stamp hot soy wax on white fabric, then brushed it with dye. After all the wax was removed and the fabric washed, I stitched into the white areas.

There's more to this quilt that what first hits your eye... so glad you showed a closeup of your stitching.  Hand-sewn... so glad to see it... and the colours you used - so wonderful.

A very beautiful piece... congratulations!
