This is one of a
series of quilts inspired by a close-up view of a feather. The fantasy feather in this design evolved from one a series of hundreds of drawings
on this theme.
The illusion of light in this quilt was created by using
fabric from my Gradations collection for Benartex (available from Paper Pieces). The multi-colored background fabric is a one-of-a-kind hand painted fabric.
All of the curved seams in
this quilt were joined using "Applipiecing", a technique
I developed in 1989 to make curved seams fast, easy,
and accurate. Instructions for applipiecing can be found at Paper Pieces.
This is the first quilt completed in my new studio at 10 Baycliff Place in Port Townsend, WA. It was started in my Paducah, KY studio during the winter of 2013-14 and completed in August 2014.
