Thread Painted Irises
19" x 38"
This art quilt was created from an abstract painted image on black fabric, which was then cut and pieced with plain black fabric to create a quilt top. The images of whispy irises emerge in the detail of thread painting done in various colors and a dense background quilting design done in black thread. The piece is framed by a tiny white corded flange and a black binding with touches of color.
