Garden Whispers is a contemporary approach to quilting - fusing modern with traditional techniques. This was a personal challenge set by myself to evoke an emotional response to a floral composition focusing on texture as opposed to color.
It is 40 cm x 40 cm. Materials: cotton, tule, cheesecloth; beads, various yarns and threads; hand and machine embroidery and quilting. The main border fabric is from Japan. It was sent back with my quilt The Joy of Anne that was on tour there last year. In the mailing parcel were six swatches of Japan cotton fabrics.. such lovely little treasures.
