Ann Turley – Flight
Fly Away Home II
Inspiration: From the children’s nursery rhyme, “Lady bird! ladybird! Fly away home, your house is on fire and your children are gone.”
A bit grim, but serves as inspiration nonetheless. The lady bug flies amongst the poppies with wings extended. The insect’s ability to hide her glorious wings under the beautiful shell is quite a feat. In slow motion it looks like origami and never ceases to amaze me. I’ve used commercial fabrics, hand dyed fabrics, fuzzy yarn, and organza. This is the second quilt that I have made in this theme.
