Bird Dance

Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Thirty small appliqued and embroidered blocks plus a lively appliqued border result in a gorgeous folk art quilt (finished size 37.5 inches x 43. 5 inches). The applique is done in an assortment of felted hand-dyed wool, cottons, and hand-dyed silk rayon velvet. Introduction: "In May of 2012, after teaching in Orvieto in Umbria, I met my parents in Rome and we flew to Sicily. We enjoyed ten days touring that wonderful island and stayed at Agriturismos, farms that also accommodate visitors. The last Agriturismo we stayed at was an old olive farm called Fattoria Mose near the town of Agrigento. Every morning we climbed to the top floor of the building for breakfast. The buffet was spread out on large tables and I quickly noticed that the floor, which was quite extensive, was tiled with antique tiles. Interspersed among plain tiles were tiles depicting many species of birds. The birds had been hand-painted and had a distinctly folk-art appearance. Those birds on that Sicilian floor became the inspiration for Bird Dance . As you sew your quilt I hope, like me, you experience a joyous sense of gratitude for all the delightful birds that enrich our lives. "
