Night Swarm

Night Swarm is part of a movement toward showing more expression in my work. While formal design concerns are still important to me, prettiness is less so. Working with tie-dyed fabrics has moved me away from total control and calculation, into a realm of partial chaos in which I am much less self-assured. I find myself responding on an emotional level.

Dyed, tie-dyed, machine pieced, quilted

34 x 38 inches | 1988

The Marbaum Collection, Gift of Hilary and Marvin Fletcher San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.
