Design Concept

In January of 2020, we visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where they have an amazing raptor free-flight show. We shot hundreds of photos and this was the first one I chose as inspiration for a quilt. To create the design, I enhanced the image of the bird with digital editing and digital painting, then added a painted background in a gradation from white to black and gold. I used the pattern on the breast of the bird to create matching binding strips and hanging sleeves. The whole composition was printed on cotton fabric by Spoonflower. The grey hawk and the tree stump are heavily quilted, to the level of thread painting, the background is echo quilted with white thread. The backing fabric is from my Gradations collection for Benartex.
