commercials, hand dyeds, and hand-dyed-look-alikes

They are all here, in this quilt, Bushfire 4 , 2000.
This large irregular shaped quilt is designed to express the fightening speed and intensity of bush fires experienced by one part or another of Australia every summer. It is another good example of how I mix hand dyed fabrics and commercially printed ones. Some commercial fabrics now look like hand dyed, so they fall into a “look-alikes” category.

and PS – although these two quilts I have posted today are in hot fiery colours, I do work with other colours and neutrals ! a large variety of which are on my website, www.alisonschwabe.com Posted by Picasa
