  • Quilts That Fly in October


    These are my latest quilts using naturally dyed fabrics and hand quilted with the help of my friends Juliette, Monica, and Mercedes. I have gathered inspiration for these quilt patterns from traditional American quilts, singling out a quilt block and creating it on a large scale is reminisent of barn quilts. The colors in these quilts are all acheived using natural dyes such as onion skins, walnut hulls, madder root, osage orange wood, and natural indigo.
