Blue Men is the nickname given to the nomadic Tuaregs who roam the Sahara desert on their camels. They wear indigo blue turbans which gives their skin a blue tint. This quilt is a tribute to the many Tuareg men I befriended while living in Africa. This is a whole cloth quilt, painted only with blue dye. The many colors of thread in the quilting give it a touch of reality.
Cotton fabric
Hand dye-painted with thickened fiber reactive dyes, machine quilted
