My Life Transformed

This is my Fiberactions "transformation" quilt, entitled Reconstruction.  I started with the background fabric -- one of my best loved early handprinted fabrics in cotton/linen -- then manipulated digital images of the fabric and printed one on homespun cotton, the other on raw silk. 

The quilt says a lot to me about taking things apart and putting them back together newly, which is pretty much what I've done with my entire life, recently.  The piece has a refreshing quality to me, complex in pattern but simple in design.

Wonderful:I like the squares, they feel like a solid grounding. That doesn't really express it well. Amazing process!

Don't you love to find a way to use favorite fabrics. This says change, but not finished. I think. I mean it is still in transition.
