I realized, while stressing over what I was going to do for this quilt, that I was glued to my television for two weeks in February watching the Olympics. What better example could I possibly find of mass communication to the whole world? My crazy quilt of the Olympic rings is the result. It is a celebration of all the nations that come together for one goal ... GOLD?
The rings are fused batiks with embroidery, beads, bangles and baubles, couched with silk sari ribbon, fabric and trim. (They're meant to be wonky!) The background consists of three pieces of shibori representing Canada's marvelous trees, mountains and sky. Hand quilted.
