Cotton fabric, acrylic fabric paint, cotton batting, cotton thread. Machine quilted. 39"x39"
This is the first piece I've done as a wholecloth painted quilt. It is based on a photo I took of a Painted Lady Butterfly (although the colors I used are completely different than this species!). I was working at taking a realistic image and abstracting it, concentrating on color and pattern and movement.
This piece is going to be displayed in the Aurifil threads booth at Quilt Market, May 15-17, 2009.
