Studio Series: Mennonitemare 1 quilt

Mennonitemare 1 is the third quilt that I ever made. I dyed and/or silkscreened most of the fabrics. The background fabric is silkscreened with articles from The Mennonite Reporter (now called The Canadian Mennonite). I machine-pieced the quilt, added appliqué and reverse appliqué by hand and then hand-quilted it.
