Hand dyed (shibori) cottons in indigo; pieced, quilted & appliqued
by hand and by machine.
The format of this quilt is a Buddhist kesa, or prayer shawl. It was inspired by a 13th century Chinese poem that reads:
"Ten thousand flowers in spring,
The moon in autumn,
A cool breeze in summer,
Snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unneccesary things,
This is the best time of your life."
