Make Me a Quilt : Cindy

Bon Bon #5
Hand dyed and commercial cottons and silks
Fused and machine quilted.
30.5 x30.5"

Silk Dupioni, silk shantung and silk charmeuse are included in the mix. The corner squares are iridescent and look like reflective metallic gold in most light. I was aiming at combining ideas from the Bon Bon series plus Radiant Orb, and the result looks far Eastern or like the Aztec Calendar.
