The Westcliffe Contemporary Quilters and Fiber Artists (WCQFA) guild, Westcliffe, Colorado, issued a challenge to its members: To create a 12” x 12” art quilt illustrating our own interpretation of a topic utilizing many aspects of quilting, edging and surface design. The resulting quilts were shown at several galleries and quilt shows.
Every morning, outside our house, we are entertained with a symphony of notes from the birds that occupy nearby trees – truly a sample of nature’s symphony. So, when this topic was provided as part of our challenge, I could not resist creating this piece.
Construction: cottons, reused upholstery fabric, ribbons, dimensional paint, computer printed fabric, fabric paint/ink, shellacked pieces of old music sheets.
