Group Quilt - My Piece

A group of art quilters from Montana and Wyoming are combining our talents to create a group quilt. A photograph from Becker Lake in the Beartooth Mountains
(which straddle both states) is the subject.
Each of the 15 participants is to create an 8 x 11" portion of the photograph.

Here is mine!

Hand dyed fabrics were fused, and screen printed. Then I dyed some silk ribbon and pearl cotton for the embroidery. There are a few pieces of that vintage lace for flowers and finally - I have stitched on some glass beads.

I hope this was not supposed to be kept under wraps. I really love the way this piece turned out and I must admit I am starting to think about expanding this style for a larger piece!

what gorgeous embroidery! I ordered some silk ribbon plus lots of cotton fibres to dye/paint a while ago. What are you dyeing the silks with?
