Quilt for Two Rivers – The Sparkly Metolius

March 8, 2012 at 11:16 am Leave a comment

Fiber artists collaborating on the Quilt for Two Rivers are blogging about their quilt panels for the 40-foot masterpiece-in-progress which honors Sisters, Oregon’s Treasured Landscapes. Featured this week:


The picture portrays my quilt panel with about 75% finished.  The Metolius River flows its sparkly way through an enchanting winter landscape. Bare branches represent winter willows.  I wanted to suggest movement of water and the mystery of the forest–I always feel quiet magic there.

I used fabric I dyed or painted along with commercially printed goods. The colors are somewhat brighter than wintry, but I felt the life beneath the winter cold and tried to express that.
It’s a privilege and honor to be part of this worthwhile project,  especially since it is for such a great cause!  And it has been fun.  We are all excited to see the completed project hung as one exhibit.
