Silk and Lace Abstract Landscape Quilt

Sun and Soil is a new abstract stitched landscape combining strips of silk with ribbon and lace. Beautiful frayed edges of silk help to form the underground, greenery and sky. The lace at the bottom of the quilt was dyed a warm chocolate brown, mimicking rich soil. The deep green and burgundy silks of the earth are dotted with metallic and glass beads, representing seeds, sprouts and rocks. 

The bright oranges and sunny yellows of the sky consist of silk, ribbon and lace trim, further enhanced with gold, orange and pearl coloured beads. This art quilt is another addition to the ongoing Silk Threads Series, exploring the abstract landscape in silk and fiber.
