Kaylene Maalste – Country – Flora/Fauna
My inspiration came from my garden and native reserve where Australian Flora is represented. I then chose Fauna that would live or visit the native trees and flowers
In my quilt are appliqued butterflies and beetles, plus a white cockatiel and a sugar glider (a gliding possum). The background material was designed by Robyn Hammond and features native flowers of Australia. The cockatiel and sugar glider were separately embroidered on white damask, the silk beetles and butterflies were appliqued directly onto the fabric. The background material was hand quilted/embroidered.
