A few months ago Marcy won a pack of shibori fabrics in one of my giveaways. I'm thrilled that she was inspired to make something with them right away. She made this specifically for a Fiber Art show in Charlottesville, VA where it will be on display through June.
Halcyon challenge- Halcyon defined as a blissful moment and a mythical bird evoked “listening to a favorite piece of music" — the Firebird Suite by Stravinsky. It just so happened that the album cover had a beautiful mythical bird (probably more like a Phoenix, but...), which I wanted to capture. It also just so happened that I had a small batch of Shiboori fabrics from Colorways by Vicki Welsh, and I thought I could bring my bird out by using my version of thread painting. As she became more visible, she showed herself as a sacred shield, and I hope that I have done her justice.
If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. In appreciation you will receive a 20% shop coupon that's good for 3 months!

I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
