This abstract art quilt is a celebration of all things botanical expressing an overflowing sense of joy.
I created this art quilt after purchasing a silk satin botanical print scarf from Sara Seltzer, of SaraSetzerFeltworks.com, at the Philadelphia Flower Show. Her scarves just spoke to me and I finally chose this print of gold and rust over dyed with indigo. I pulled all the other fabrics, all silk, from my stash, some commercial and some hand dyed.
I screen printed a few leaves to add to the mix and had an absolute ball quilting more botanical themes throughout. The entire quilt is pieced in an improvisational style which added to the pure fun of compiling all the elements. I used polyester and metallic threads.
It measures 47″ x 38″. There is a hanging sleeve on the back.
