lofty quilts and high art
This piece was inspired by a background that, after I finished the top, looked like a lone planet in the sky. It needed focus, something flying. Then I spotted a scrap of Ricky Tims hand-died fabric[ that resembled something flying.
After trimming and appliquéing it onto the background, it looked like a hawk — a seahawk! We live in Washington State, USA, home of the Seahawks football team. I'm a fan.
