Like most of my inspirations born from observation of the organic world, I was fascinated with the appearance of the Covid-19 virus. As the virus migrates and morphs in the microscopic, beauty is revealed. Color, shape and fluidity is what I was trying to capture here.
This is a “whole cloth” quilt meaning that it was constructed of only one facing fabric. In this case I painted the fabric with several layers of paint to capture the effect I wanted. Each virus was painted separately using a monotype process then appliquéd to the quilt and finished with more paint to blend them in.
This top was layered with batting and a backing fabric then stitched in many colors of thread to produce the bubbling effect. This is an original one-of-a-kind art piece. This ships free of charge or can delivered in my region.
