Art quilting is my passion. I love exploring its boundaries; adding textural, sculptural, hand-dyed, hand-painted, and embellished elements. Nothing makes my day better, unless it is doing the same, with friends. I also like to garden, paint with watercolour, draw, knit, hike, and cook.
I included the symbol of a spiral to represent growth. I have been trying to design some original flower blocks and this is one of them. I was very interested in developing the quilting layer as an opaque layer, so I free-motion embroidered the black vines quite densely.
This piece uses commercial batiks, polyester embroidery threads and cotton threads.
