Marshland is an embellished fabric and fiber art quilt, designed in a free-form abstract style.
Marshes are fascinating for the many different ecosystems in their environs. They often border woodlands, incorporate shallow areas of grasses, and have murky zones that morph into open water to meet the sky.
This piece is created with cotton batik, print and hand-dyed fabrics using piecing and applique methods, with decorative free-motion topstiching using cotton variegated color threads. Embellished with velour and rayon fibers, acrylic painting, and beads of acrylic and vintage-style brass.
The cotton fern print border uses a traditional quilt binding style. A 3-inch hanging sleeve is sewn in, for hanging with a decorative rod.
