"Endangered" - The Lemur's Tale is a piece I am very proud of, not only because these lemurs are stunning, but because it was the hardest quilt I had to make. To me it represents not only the endangered species of this beautiful planet, but also how we all endanger our relationships with each other, this earth our creator; and by not giving up on it, beauty results.
"Eye See My Beloved"
Quilt Alliance - The Animals We Love
This quilt was hand painted by Syrie Walsh on Dupioni silk with Seta Silk fabric paint and silk screening inks then thread painted and free-motion quilted by Maria Ferri Cousins. The raw edge applique feathers were made using a burnt silk technique. A trapunto eye is embellished with glass beads.
This Spanish Royal owl lives in San Roque, Spain. When a brush fire destroyed his habitat in August of 2014, a month later the flower "Our Beloved Naked Ladies" bloomed for the first time in 10 years. The intense heat was needed for the bloom.
The wild life on this planet is precious to us. When tragedy hits sometimes beauty blooms.
