The image that came to me with clarity was gazing at clouds, finding shapes, and enjoying the daydreams from those imagined shapes. Is the little girl in the quilt daydreaming of a south sea adventure in her own little sailboat?
The background was created using a technique developed by Anna Faustino and detailed in her book, Simply Stunning Woven Quilts. I started with two log cabin blocks with the square in the upper right corner. The blocks were cut into strips between the seams, one vertically and one horizontally, and woven together. I cross hatch quilted the woven square using a serpentine stitch and variegated thread. The black design and the clouds are fused on top of the background square.
This quilt is gallery wrapped around a 12 inch x 12 inch x ¾ inch wooded frame.
