A Winter's Tale
Festival of Quilts 2007 - Winner - Contemporary Small Quilts and Machine Quilting
Hand-dyed and printed cotton silks and satins on a whole cloth white cotton sateen background, all machine-quilted and hand-embellished with Swarovski crystals.
This is the final quilt in the 'Rhythm Of Life' series.
I wrote the single word 'rhythm' repeatedly and tried to find a way to use the linear design on a white background. Working on the appliqué on a cold winter’s day inspired both the title and the use of the crystals. The quilting design represents freshly fallen snow. The crystals emphasise the moonlight on the snow.
