Spring 2010

Isn't this spring weather great?! I am an avid gardener so this time of year is exciting. I can see everything come to life almost before my very eyes. As a tribute to Spring 2010, I have dedicated my newest quilt art piece to her. The piece is named "Persephone Rising".
This piece is an experiment with cyanotype fabric that was printed with sticks and stones. (I have a love affair going on with sticks that drives my husband nuts. We both love rocks so that works out.) I enhanced the fabric with white pearl fabric paint. A border of color similar snow dyed fabric was added. I quilted the piece and enhanced it further with watercolor pencil. A canvas wrapped frame has been built for it and it is almost ready to go up for display.

I have included an image that shows the complete piece and a detailed image.
