Whole cloth. Hand dyed (shibori) cotton in indigo over fiber-reactive dyes. Quilted by hand.

 

 

This is a study for my quilt "Soiree at Walden" to see how shibori technniques can create fireflies, luna and chickpea moths. Techniques include "hotaru," that translates from the japanese as "firefly" and is actually used here to make its namesakes.
