Juried into Pacific International Quilt Festival.
I took a fabric dying class from Phil Beaver and my fabrics were supposed to be used to create poinsettias. Apparently I did not follow the directions well and my colors were not that of a poinsettia! I created this quilt from those fabrics and since the flowers do not resemble anything found in nature, I titled the quilt “Midnight Garden” as though from a dream.
Silk dupioni background, backing, binding and Prarie Points; hand-dyed cotton flowers, cotton border. Rayon and cotton threads. Wool batting.
