Description of Item

Artist Name: Maria F Cousins

City/Town: Great river
State/Province: NY
Country: United States

Materials and Techniques: I took a picture of a butterfly on a flower and then a bee landed on it and I captured the image. They looked like they were talking to each other. I then added the wasp and the ant and they are conversing. Their conversation is written in morse code on the radio waves in the sky. They are also reading the title on the back of the quilt in braille. Both the Braille and Morse code alphabet is included on the quilt label along with its secret message.

Artist's Statement: The quilt is hand painted on silk with fabric paints and dyes then machine and hand embroidered. The center of the flower is all hand done with French knots. The bee, butterfly, wasp and ant were first machine embroidered and then machine appliqued on the quilt. The actual voices of the critters are told in morse code and the title is in the back in Braille French knots. The flower petals and the leaves were thread painted and then double layered for texture and dimension. The border was made from left over silk embroidered upholstery fabric.

Size: 16" x 16"
