Zen Eucalyptus

Here's my 3x4' quilt, entitled "Zen Eucalyptus" It's made from felt that I created using the wet-felting technique--then I cut the large pieces of felt into squares and reassembled onto pieces of dyed cotton batting, then backed with a piece of commerical wool felt. There are hours and hours of hand sewing, and it has lots of texture AND it was juried into "EDGES"where it will be seen by thousands of people at the Long Beach Internation Quilt Festival July 24-26. Waay cool!

Pacific Coast Fiber Artists & Friends present "EDGES" sponsored by Interweave/Quilting Arts.
Cutting edge fiber artists give us a view of their interpretation of the theme "Edges" - the sharp cutting part of a blade, sharpness, keenness; the projecting ledge of a cliff, brink; the part furthest from the middle; border, margin - from nature, architecture, household objects, a silhouette, tools and/or the edge of anything interesting by using colors, contrasts, and textures. This exhibit makes it debut at
Long Beach Internation Quilt Festival.
