This quilt was made using a photo of an overblown artichoke as inspiration. It was dried up and left over from last years garden. It caught my eye and I decided to use it as I experimented painting on silk. The result was a fun project - of an unusual flower.
The use of silk has resulted in a very "light weight" feeling quilt.
It was displayed at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in 2021. Also at the Redwood Art Assn. Feb. 2022 (given Honorable Mention)
