Summer Breeze by Wendy L. Starn of Alexandria, Louisiana

Visit the artist’s website

Techniques Used:

Stamped, pieced, fused, thread embellished, machine embroidered, painted, quilted with metallic and other threads

Artist Statement:

Summer in Louisiana is hot and sticky, and breezes are more than welcome! I worked with a photograph of a native Cardinal Flower and studied several photos of dragonflies while making this quilt. The curling and swirling breeze is the most ephemeral of elements, and is represented with sheer fabric and thin metallic thread.
