In Flight

Art quilt with birds2009
20″ x 36″

This quilt was created using the ‘Darned Quilt’ technique created by Dena Crain: fabric is re-arranged to create contrasting shapes. 100% cotton fabric, primarily batik.

This is one of my earliest quilts. One of the many online classes that I took with Dena Crain involved learning what she called her “Darned Quilt” technique. One mark of the change in seasons in upstate New York is a sky filled with migrating birds. In this quilt, the bird images were cut out of various areas of the background of this art quilt and transposed with other cut-uts.
