12″ x 12″
Made for 2013 Studio Art Quilt Assoc Benefit Auction
Hand dyed wool, hand dyed silk organza backing, silk and polyester threads
Each year Studio Art Quilt Associates holds a Benefit Auction to raise funds for the organization. Each member may contribute one 12″ x 12″ piece and the auction is held in a reverse format with prices going from $750, then $550, $250, $150 and $75. I was pleased that my piece raised $150 for SAQA.
Verdant View was made from hand dyed wool by Patti Henderson and the silk organza was hand dyed by me in a class with Linda Waddle. I quilted the two pieces together and then very carefully did the cutwork of the wool, leaving the silk organza to peek through. I wrote about my process here.
