Last night was the opening of the bi-annual exhibition of ‘Australian Quilts in Public Places’. This years theme was ‘Reflection’. There were more than 50 quilts jammed into the White Horse Art space in Box Hill, Melbourne, Australia.
I received a ‘highly commended’ for the following work: ‘Place of Reflection’. It is a whole quilt and begun its life as a piece of ice-dyed fabric. I added hand-dyed sheer and cotton fabrics. The darker tree fabric is, in fact, one of my children’s baby sheets that has been over-dyed. If you look closely you can even see a few alphabet blocks! There is a lot of machine stitching with metallic and shiny threads to add shimmer to the water. Some Inktense pencil work has been added to define the waters edge.
Unfortunately this is a poor quality photo, but will have to do, for now.
