I am pleased to be apart of the exhibit Artist As Quiltmaker XVIII, presented by the Firelands Association For The Visual Arts, Oberlin, Ohio from May 13–July 29, 2018.
Here are a few studio views which show the design and construction process of this quilt. The strips were cut diagonally on the 16″ x 36″ prints of color enhanced photos taken of boat reflections in the water, a picture taken at the locks in Seattle on one of our opera trips. I really love how the water ripples look like shibori produced resist stripes, when cut into strips and robbed of their material reality.
The strips were then arranged for the desired effect before the fusing to the background fabric and quilt sandwich.
