Lately I’ve been composing fabric made of small scraps in one color family – red, pink, yellow, blue, green, etc. Some of that made fabric, combined with cerise fabric, hand dyed seam binding, and a deep stash batik, turned into Broken Glass.
A few years ago my husband and I took a road trip through southeastern Ohio, West Virginia, and Kentucky. I insisted we stop at the Blenko Glass Company in Milton, West Virginia for a tour as I owned some of their work. I did gain a greater understanding of how the glass was made, but I was most struck by those vast bins filled with bits of glass sparkling in the sun.
I guess my subconscious was trying to recreate that image in this quilt.
