Hand dyed shibori cottons in indigo, hand quilted and framed.
Private Collection, Newtonville, MA
Blue mussels are the perfect subject for indigo dyeing. This is a small framed whole cloth quilt. The water patterns are created by tightly gathering up stitched lines in the fabric. Knots create the circles. Shibori and indigo were made for each other.
