This quilt was inspired by a photograph of an exotic pink lilly, whose veined petals created engaging lines and interesting patterns. The grey fabric is a gorgeous single piece of hand dyed cotton from Laura Wasilowski, and it was very hard for me to cut it up. At least I know I can always get more! The pink slivers are also a special fabric which I bought in an antique store in Petaluma, CA. The vintage fabric is lovely and has been in my stash for at least ten years, just waiting for the right quilt.

This piece will also be featured in an exhibit at Yale University's Haskin's Laboratory Gallery as part of a photographic/quilt exhibit entitled "Double-Take" in two weeks. More about that on my personal blog soon.
