Bird Quilt

There are a couple important regional shows coming up, and I'm well underway to create work that's good enough to get juried in - or at least the best work I'm capable of. I'm focusing on very bright colors, lots of texture, and subject matter that's close to my heart. The bird drawing on fabric is outlined with a brush point permanent marker to get the thick and thin lines. I then colored in it with Inktense water soluble colored pencils and heat set the fabric with an iron. The background is pieced with hand dyed and painted fabric from the studio.
