Design Concept

The theme of this quilt is the movement and joy expressed in dance. The materials used were all left over from other projects. The background was made from small bits of fabric trimmed from the seam allowances of another quilt, and the threads pulled from the frayed edges of torn strips of fabric. These were arranged on a background of hand painted fabric. The figures are made from small triangles laid flat, on the background, then folded at various angles and stitched heavily with various colors of thread. An inner border of hand painted fabric was added, and additional machine stitching was done, covering most of the surface. A solid purple outer border was added, and the entire piece was quilted.
