Somewhere along my travels I photographed these lilies and thought they would be a perfect subject for a quilt. 

In April 2019, I took a week-long class with Velda Newman at  Alegre Retreat at the Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado. 

I hand painted the lilies and used hand-dyed fabric for the leaves.

Hollyhocks grow well in the high desert of rural New Mexico where I live. 

They easily reseed themselves every year. My front and back yard chain link fences are surrounded by Hollyhocks every summer, and I never tire of looking out my windows at them!

I started this quilt at Alegre Retreat in Gateway Canyons, CO in a class with Jane Sassaman.

It was fun to interpret Hollyhocks in a whimsical way with new methods and materials.

I photographed this Roadrunner in the middle of flowers in my yard. It was fun interpreting him in a colorful and whimsical quilt!

Exhibited at the Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta 2019 where it won a third place ribbon.
