7992  May Flowers    ($50)

Width: 9"   Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: Hand dyed, painted, and inked fabric, needle turn applique, hand quilting, hand embroidery, and piecing.

Artist Statement: I wanted to make a background fabric with lots of texture and well as text. I went through a flower book and wrote down the Latin names of many flowers onto the painted background. I used scraps from other projects to piece the grass. The flowers were free hand drawings of basic flower shapes. Most of my current work is by machine, I missed the hand work, so most of this quilt was constructed by hand.
