Icarus Also Flew

52.5" x 53.5" 2010. Available 2012. This quilt is an exploration of expansiveness, of opening to one's true direction. The bird, heart, and tree leaves are appliqued and trapunto stuffed with wool. The borders each have songs and poetry related to flying printed on to the fabric pieces. (Ink jet printing is on pre- and post-treated fabric to make the printing color-fast.) The face and back of the quilt are 100% cotton, the batting is 50% bamboo/50% cotton. A variety of quilting patterns include outlining shapes and leaf vines. All poetry and writers are attributed on the quilt label. A 4" rod pocket for hanging is on the back.
