11,277 - Fly Away  ($60.05)

Width: 11.25" Length: 8.25"

Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: I love black and wanted this to have a black background. I appliquéd a shimmery green fabric for the leaves and then just chalk marked a general area for the free motion seeds to fly. I would like to do a larger triptych of the dandelion.

Artist Statement: I don't know why I have fought these dandelions all my life. When you really look at them they are rather pretty. Time changes everything. I like to do everything organic now. We have enough bad stuff in the world. I only have lawn in the front of my house. The back yard is all flowers and veggies. I do have a water feature for the birds and squirrels and me too. One can always find a subject to draw here and there. I could have called this quilt multiply.
