Entry #: AP 1705

Entrant: Susan Sherman

Dimensions: 49" x 33"

Materials: Cotton lawn fabric, procion dyes and 100% silk batting.

Techniques: Dye-painted wholecloth quilt with hand quilting and longarm quilting with a stitch regulator.

Artist’s Statement: Magellanic penguins nest in large rookeries, vulnerable to sea-level rise and oil spills. I saw this group in Patagonia and loved their expressiveness and unique colouring. This wholecloth piece was fun to quilt, especially around each individual stone they are standing on.
