“Cosmic Stream” Quilt Dares to be Square

"Cosmic Stream," 12" x 12", Sept. 2012

The background fabric for this quilt was fabric that I hand-painted a few years ago but wasn't sure what to do with it. The three pieces of hand-painted lace were leftover from another project and were quilted to the background fabric along with a piece of hand-dyed sheer fabric that was twisted and runs across the middle of the piece. Two different yarns were twisted together then couched next to the sheer fabric.

The quilting lines that echo the "stream" and the lace swirls. Embellishments include antique buttons and tiny blue beads that were attached by hand.

 
The quilt is mounted on at 12”x12” wooden frame similar to how canvas is wrapped over a wooden frame. It was made for the “Dare 2B Square” art show at Village Artisans which runs through the end of October.  All pieces in the show are 12”x12” and priced at $100, although "Cosmic Stream" has already been sold.

Village Artisans is located at 100 Corry St. in Yellow Springs and is open Mon.-Thurs. 11 am- 5 pm, Fri.-Sat., 11 am-6 pm and Sun. noon-5 pm. There will be an artist reception on Fri., Oct. 19 from 6-9 pm.
