Photo inspired from a Hopi Sunflower, this 3 Dimensional sunflower is original design. It was constructed as a challenge entry for the Rochester Quilt Sew-ciety Quilt Show 20015 “Paint Chip Challenge.”
The fabrics used are hand dyed, hand painted, and commercially purchased.
Within each petal is a piece of sculpture wire mesh and cotton batting to make it malleable. The centre is hand painted and overlaid with couched eyelash yarn and stacked bugle beads. The backing contains heavy Pellon interfacing and is quilted.
Currently on exhibit at the Minnesota Textile Centre, “Common Thread Exhibit.
