Under a Silken Moon #3
Hand Dyed cottons and silks, fused, machine quilted. 17.5" x12.75"
Perhaps it was the 'third times a charm' idea, but this was heavenly to make. I had lots of fun using my special edition cottons and silks which I had been saving for something special, and having found it, I am so glad I did save them. Silk dupioni (one piece, the dark blue right under the moon), hand dyed charmeuse and shantung silks were included in this composition. FYI, when I dye silks, I use exactly the same process I use for cottons, nothing different or extra. I wanted to photograph the shine of these silks which is why I have included these angled shots, hoping to capture the iridescence. The sky fabric is sateen cotton, which is glossier than the regular cottons in the design.
My niece Glory is starring as Cosette in the production of Les Mis!!! She is pictured on this billboard on Market street, somewhere in downtown Chattanooga.
I am SO PROUD OF HER.
