Bird of Paradise
This is a whole cloth quilt - one in a series of whole cloth work that I have done. The design was inspired by an applique pattern I came across. I used some stencils in the design and played with the grapevine border until I was satisfied. Working in whole cloth is very enjoyable and challenging. This quilt is made with cotton sateen fabric. It has extensive trapunto work and was quilted with an 80/20 poly cotton batting.
