Wave 17, 20" x 20"    Wave 17 is a small piece in my series of quilts inspired by the spirals within ocean waves. I am extremely interested in how an idea gets a physical form; I begin to understand this by observing my own design and technique processes as I continue to make  quilts.  I enjoy the large motor movements as I apply dye on my monoprinting surface, and as I apply the dye, ideas develop and  I make choices in the moment. I get texture and marks  from my monoprinting adventures that  I could never paint.   After the dyeing, I transform the surface again with stitching. In this case, I anchored the spirals with machine quilting and filled all the spaces with hand stitching using various colors embroidery floss to add to the movement in the shapes and to  enhance  and contrast with the colors on the surface of the silk.
