Wildflower Garden. Repurposed clothing and textiles, cotton, linen, silk. 2023.  54 1/2" x 67"

This quilt was made in stages from 2020 - 2023.  The log cabin portion was pieced together from vintage florals in 2020.   The light brown silk and cotton were dyed with coffee grounds and tea leaves in 2021 and the tulip appliqué was hand-sewn the same year.  In 2022, the mountain moon was assembled as well as the coffee-dyed pieces.  These were all made as different projects that I began by planting seeds of ideas and then setting them aside to germinate.  I revisited my collection of in progress pieces during the spring and summer of 2023 and re-evaluated them, cultivating a series of pieces that began to grow into something bigger which eventually became this garden plot of a quilt.  It was as if the coffee and tea made for composted soil, around which the log cabins became little organized flower beds growing beneath a quarter moon.  A garden path cuts through the center of the quilt leading to an entrance through a moon gate in the upper left corner.  A night garden, all under the supervision of a dream-weaving spider.  'May all your weeds be wildflowers,' she says.

The top is pieced by machine, embroidery and appliquéd done by hand.  Hand-quilted using varying shades of sashiko and embroidery thread.
Batting is a cotton.  Binding is hand-stitched.

Care:

Machine wash cold, delicate cycle using gentle, pH-neutral detergent. Tumble dry low heat or air dry.  To keep colors from fading, store or hang out of direct sunlight.  Create warm memories, love, patch, and mend.
