Diana Vincent – Seasons – Antarctic Summer
The Antarctic is one place on earth where there is little seasonal change, it is ice and snow all year round. In the summer when there is light almost twenty four hours a day some of the ice recedes a little revealing craggy mounds with a scattering of hardy wildflowers, this is what I have tried to recreate in my quilt. Hand dyed background, hand dyed feature fabrics for the mounds, white manipulated scrim as snow drifts. Machine quilted with a variety of metallic threads to add sparkle, unfortunately this didn’t come through on the pictures. Bound with bridal veiling so as not to intrude on the overall scene.
