Butterfly and Flowers


23.5″ x 29.5″


cotton, silk, textile paint, fusible web


Painted silk flower (from Andrea Brokenshire workshop), painted cotton background, fabric collage, fusing

Knots & Tangles

Transparency of the painted silk allowed the background to show through. I have detailed my solution and other posts related to this quilt in the “Read about my process” section.


A beautiful flower resulted from a sil painting workshop, and it had to get used somewhere!
