|Artist Statement:||This is an art quilt of swallows in a tree. I was moved by these birds caring for their nest, and by their blue feathers and spiked tails. They seem so admirable!
I used all kinds of fabric snippets so you could experience their fluffiness and the layers of the tree in which they live.
Made with a sleeve on the back for hanging. Free motion, machine quilted.
