Moon Hike uses the directional lines of the fabric to make the composition, creating a Sierra Nevada mountains moment. This was featured in the Ventura County Museum of Art first art quilt exhibit in 2009. I have made almost 200 art quilts; at least 40% deal with landscape or nature images, including using hornets nests for their color and texture. I also like opposite challenges such as bridges, food, and mannequins. As artists we take it all in; then we have to comment on it with our work. My studio is 14 by 14, and in the summers I work in a cabin. I am a three year cancer survivor. My art keeps me going.
Domestic cloth, Gutterman threads, and Hoffman batiks were used.
Machine free motion quilted on a Bernina 440 QE, raw edge appliqu�, no fusing, some handwork. In this piece I let the colors, texture and the direction of the fabric make the statement.
