Mountain Blaze - Playing With Fire

27.5" x 19" ©2013

This art quilt represents my evolution of incorporating my own dyed fabrics into my designs
as well as with commercial fabrics.

This quilt was inspired by an article and picture about forest fires that was published
in the Calgary Herald in the summer of 2012.

I learned how to dye fabric that summer with Anna Hergert in her Art Quilt campus at Emma Lake.
I was inspired by my dyed fabric creations and made this quilt inspired by that photo
the following summer when Northern Alberta experienced destructive forest fires and made this quilt.
