Winter White, 2009 Patchwork with upholstery fabric and commercial cottons, crocheted applique
Detail of the patchwork and crochet.
Winter has a lot more color in the landscape than it initially appears. The flash of red cardinals, the remainder of green moss, the rich textures of all of the trees that line the hills that surround my home. Add a misty layer of a snowfall and you have the perfect composition.
If one has the pleasure of being snowed in with no place to go, it is fun to recreate the landscape in fabric. Just make sure the power and heat stay on!
