Reston, VA USA
Width: 11.5" Length: 8.75"
Materials/Techniques: Stitched canvas, acrylic paint, machine-pieced cotton fabrics, hand-sewn natural stone beads.
Artist Statement: I painted lightweight canvas by making impressions with autumn maple and oak leaves. They came out pretty and lacy. When I cut the canvas into shapes like banners and added the little confetti squares of color, it looked like a stage curtain rising for a spectacular performance, which is how autumn often feels to me.
Dedication: To my sister, Liz, who loved the bright foliage colors and crisp air of autumn.
This quilt has a Hanging Ring.
