Artist Statement: The waterways in the Pacific Northwest have always been close to my heart. Life and movement above and below the surface is really a miracle to experience when we can take the time to do so. Materials & Techniques: The background fabric of this quilt, the "grout" is a cotton/silk blend. Commercial and purchased hand-dyed fabrics were used. Photos were transferred onto commercial fabric using an Ink Jet Printer. All fabric was fused onto background fabric, then machine quilted.
