Ancient Spirals

New Work!
I recently completed this piece, which I am calling "Ancient Spirals".
Hand dyed and hand painted cotton broadcloth and cheesecloth.
Thermofax screen printed, machine and hand stitched.

Embellished with granite fragments collected this past summer on the trail to Timberline Lake.
Size is 16 x 20" - quilt is wrapped over stretcher bars with a hanging wire on the back.

The Thermofax screen spiral is from this photo I took at Saguaro National Park in Arizona in 2009.

Cynthia, as usual your work is fabulous! But I'm in New Mexico and don't know where this park is. Are you sure you weren't in Arizona? If not, let me know where this is. Thanks. Lynn

Yes Lynn, Thank you for correcting me. You are correct. This park is in Arizona - near Tuscon! I fixed my mistake!
