Wedding Cala Lilly




Wedding Cala Lilly





I made this quilt as part of an exhibit that took place on an island near the coast of Germany.  Curated by Diana Leone, the theme of the show was flowers.  Diana had been designing a lot of fabric at the time, so I used some of her fabric in my quilt.  I chose the Cala Lilly as my central image out of inspiration and respect for Georgia O’Keefe and her large flower paintings. I have also used images of tree branches to suggest a forest, and toward the bottom of the quilt is a teapot and cups, suggesting a hidden picnic.  I embellished the quilt with paint, buttons, beads, braids and “yo-yos”. Also Machine appliqué, fabric, thread, rubber stamps.
