Size 19" w X 18" h


Artist's Statement:
As a member of a small art quilt focus group, I participated in a group challenge to create a piece that used only blue and green fabrics, with finished size of 10" x 12".  

I started working on this piece for the challenge, and somehow I forgot that the requirements stated that the finished size was supposed to be only 10" x 12".   So I completed "Anemone", and then created a second piece (Sea Nettles) for the group challenge.

The Japanese yukata fabric in the center of "Anemone" reminded me of a picture I had seen in a science magazine of delicate "anemones" gently drifting, floating ever so gracefully and effortlessly in the ocean.

Pieced and free motion quilting by machine.  Surface embellishment of hand beaded glass beads.

Fabrics used were Batiks, hand-dyed cottons, commercial cottons, and the centerpiece of Japanese yukata cotton.  Threads used for free-motion machine quilting and machine piecing were rayon, cotton, and monofilament/nylon threads.  The embellishment of glass beads was added by hand.  Polyester batting was used.
