2nd place award in abstract pictorial category, CQA NJS 2006
The many varieties of sunflowers in my garden grow wild. This quilt lets me enjoy them all year round. Like the sunflowers, the background recycled vintage prints have a timeless appeal and compliment these seedy specimens. The ‘tongue-in-cheek’ title refers to both the sunflowers' unkempt natural state and the method of construction.
Techniques and materials include distortion, burned synthetics, trapunto, raw edge collage, hand and machine embroidery, beading.
