  Nepenthe   •  Linda Colsh view larger image


Nepenthe is the first quilt I set out to make as art. I lived in California at the time; an encouraging and nurturing place, where the draw of self-expression and free design in fabric was irresistible. The “bluer” side represents a drive down the Big Sur coast in the foggy morning light. The reverse, more golden side, shows the mountains of Big Sur basking in the afternoon sunlight.

Dyed, discharged, machine pieced, hand quilted

29 x 29 inches | 1988
