Design Concept

click for larger image

In February 2020 we did a photographic workshop/tour in Antarctica. I loved the serenity of this cormorant, floating among the ice bergs in the remote and pristine wilderness of Neco Harbor. I decided to incorporate a lot of negative space in my design and digitally painted the background in a gradation from aqua to white. My design and matching custom binding strips, were printed by Spoonflower.com

The cormorant and the water surrounding it are heavily quilted and thread painted. The negative spaces are quilted simply with a series of almost parallel lines that echo the ripples in the water. The backing fabric is from my Glacier Park collection for Benartex.
