Psychedelic Big Bang

by Susan Cleveland of West Concord, Minnesota

Artist Statement:

This quilt was created using a “design as you go” methodology. Starting with an outline (old window), designs and colors were gradually added until completed. Not knowing what the finished quilt would look like gave me the freedom to play with the colors and designs throughout the process.”

Winner: Third Prize in Mixed Technique

Award sponsored by Robert Kaufman Co.
