This is one of a
series of quilts inspired by a close-up view of a feather. This quilt
is a fantasy feather that evolved from one a series of hundreds of drawings
on this theme.
The illusion of light in this quilt was created by using
fabric that was hand dyed in gradations of color and value.
The machine quilting was done with many different colors
of Madeira Poly-Neon thread, many of them were doubled (two different
colors used together as one). The feather is quilted in freeform organic
patterns, and spaces between the feathers are quilted in an overall serpentine
meander pattern. The back of the quilt is a single hand painted fabric.
