This quilt is called Hosta, and I began the piece in a Ruth McDowell workshop. It was exhibited in the Ontario Juried Show at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery in 2000. This quilt is entirely machine-pieced with my hand-dyed, over-dyed, monoprinted and commercial fabrics. Some parts are 3-dimensional. I dyed the hosta flower fabrics to match the flowers of one of my plants.

I will be creating new gardens at my house this spring, including a shade garden. All my favorite hostas will be there including:
  • Blue Umbrellas
  • Fragrant Bouquet
  • El Nino
  • Krossa Regal
  • Abiqua Drinking Gourd
  • Cherry Berry
  • Halcyon
  • Sagae
