Dandelions and Hollyhocks
After a long, unproductive winter, I finally have made something new. This piece is called "Dandelions and Hollyhocks". It is 22" x 36". I had such a good time making it from beginning to end. I especially enjoyed the quilting - there are actually some feathers surrounded by stippling - not something I usually do. For once I tried to actually think about the quilting enhancing the quilt rather than just going into a Zen state and seeing how it worked out. Okay, I did do quite a bit of that too. It was also fun to return to my bright colors and there is even a bug appliqued on.
This is another of Ellen Anne Eddy's light source fabrics. I auditioned several backgrounds and this piece brought the picture to life.
