Silver Trees

Silver Trees

39 inches wide x 39 inches long
100cm x 100cm

This quilt was made to satisfy a challenge for our Thr3fold exhibiting group. It was inspired by a fabulous sunset viewed one evening during the drive from the hills above Vancouver to downtown. The silver trees that gave the quilt its name were a beautiful feature of the garden of fellow Thr3fold member, Catherine Nicholls. Lit from below their white trunks shone theatrically through the dark night! I used marbled fabrics discovered at the Quilt Museum at La Conner together with my hand dyes. The piece has been free motion machine quilted and I’ve accentuated the effect of the feather motifs within the quilting by highlighting them with metallic, copper fabric paint. One edge of the quilt has been embellished with natural shell buttons secured with bright red thread to echo some of the colours of the marbled fabric.
