Width: 8.25"   Length: 10.75"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton, dupioni silk; reverse applique; machine quilting

Artist Statement: I saw this technique in the latest issue of Quilting Arts. I stacked three different fabrics together (4" squares), randomly stitched on them, cut into 2" squares, machine stitched to the background. I ironed a piece of silk to bonding material and randomly cut curved pieces, which were bonded them stitched to the background fabric. The smaller squares were stitched over these. Dupioni silk is very easy to work with, and gives the quilts a nice texture. I loved making this quilt.
