Studio series: Forgiveness #3

This is one of the sparest quilts that I've ever made. It is simple and calm. I dyed the golden fabrics with onion skins and various mordants and I painted the centre blue rectangle with silk-screening ink. This quiet little quilt is in the collection of a Gemini award-winning sound person and her multimedia husband. How cool is that?

Brave work here, Karen.
So elemental and strong, wow.
