Spring Reverie

hand dyed with birds and butterfliesSpring Reverie

2013
16″ x 19″

Hand dyed cotton with Angelina stitched figures appliquéd to background. Free motion quilting.

This art quilt began as a piece of fabric that I dyed using an ice dyeing technique. The fabric immediately reminded me of the expansion of new energy that comes with each spring. As I began quilting it, as a whole cloth design, it spoke to me even more of spring. Adding a bird in flight and the butterflies seemed a natural completion.
