Design Concept

This "green" quilt was made for a display of quilts about the environment in the Fairfield Processing booth at the International Quilt Market, Houston TX in 2007. The purpose of the display was to introduce Fairfield's new "green" batting made from renewable bamboo. One of my pet environmental projects is preserving the wetlands on my farm in western Kentucky. This original abstract design reminded me of the marsh grasses in the wetlands.

The fabrics are from my "gradations" collection for Benartex. The machine quilting was done with many different colors and shades of thread.

This quilt was the inspiration for a barn quilt in North Carolina by Jill Smith.The nearest address to the barn is 885 Proffitt Road, Boone, NC 28607.
