Umbelliferous - Queen Anne's Lace No. 1
A friend has teased me that I am working on a series about weeds. I prefer to think of them as stunningly beautiful wildflowers. I simply love the architecture of Queen Anne's Lace, which is in the category of Umbelliferous flowers...those who share a structure with the umbrella. This is a wholecloth quilt, with background dyed be me. I creates a screen for printing based on photos I took of the flower, which I used to print on the blue, then enhances with a ridiculous amount of quilting and paint.
Materials: artist-dyed cotton, textile paint, commercial cottons, Mistyfuse, thread, wool blend batting.
Size: 40 x 40 inches.
In the Collection of Teri Donovan.
