lofty quilts and high art

Out of My Inner Mind:

Concept and Manipulation of the Thread

One-Person Exhibition, 2015

Seahawk, #155

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.
