Design Concept

This is one of a series of quilts exploring spontaneous designs, created by painting fabric with fiber reactive dye, then embroidering and quilting the design to give it definition and relief. The design of this fabric painting reminded me of photographs of various organic substances taken through a microscope. The fabric was quilted heavily by machine in a freeform pattern with no marking of the quilt top. The machine quilting becomes a major design element in this piece, providing a foreground dimension that echoes the painted design.
