A Dark Angel's Plea for the
Salvation of Our Planet

60"w x 80"h

Materials: digitally printed images on "MyFab," metallic and novelty synthetic fabrics, novelty trims, Sulky variegated thread, tulle

This quilt was made for a challenge from the "MyFab" fabric company in Japan, which unfortunately never resulted in a show. The contestants (20 from Japan and 20 from the US) were required to use at least 40 sheets of "MyFab" with digital images printed on them, with no commercial prints allowed. I had just taken a pile of photos of this amazing mudflat sculpture in San Francisco Bay, and jumped at the opportunity to use my images in a quilt. I collaged together the sky, the skyline and the beach by cutting up the photos I had printed, and even made the stripe from a photo of a crack in the sidewalk.
