What the Tide Brings 2


The two pieces in “What the Tide Brings” series were completed in the same week but in different rooms. Tide #1 began with traditional -but also playful- log cabin blocks that build outward until the traditional grid disappears. Tide #2 uses many of the same fabrics, but the block structure drops off and gives way to overlapping raw-edges, reflective of the ever-returning shoreline waves. The collaged shell cluster embellishments (on both pieces) represent the treasures remaining on the beach when the tide goes back out. The rose and orange-toned fabrics are actually vintage traditional blue and white hand-stenciled Japanese summer yukata kimono remnants that had yellowed greatly with age, but given a 2nd life by over-dyeing. Tide #2 has a machine-pieced top and is hand-quilted through batting.
