Higher Flower Power

October 2005

40" X 32"

New Rochelle Library 2006, 2006 Northern Star Quilt Guild Show -2nd place Innovative Applique, Juried into "SAQA Transformations 2007"

Hand dyed fabric by Melody johnson and me, commercial batiks

Inspired by a piece of Melody's fabric, and an Art Deco bank facade in Yonkers, NY, I machine appliqued the design. I was aiming for the paradoxical place between the peace and order of organic symmetry and the shock of vivid color
