Bird of Paradise
2.5 in(42 cm x 51 cm x 6 cm)
I made this 3-D quilt in response to a challenge from my group in Florida. I had taken several pictures of bird of paradise flowers there and wanted to see if I could make the leaves so that they could be positioned and moved, simulating a real plant. I now had a studio to work out of, with lots of mixed media items to choose from so the possibilities were endless! I designed the piece myself.
