The Fabric That Inspired “Martello #6: Skyward”


Almost two years ago, my friend and fellow artist, Kathryn (Casey) Collier, passed away after a long battle with cancer.  Casey enjoyed a multitude of interests, but she was most passionate about creating art quilts and hand dyeing fabric, yarn, ribbon, t-shirts, and bamboo socks.

Martello #6: Skyward” features Casey’s azure, teal, and violet hand-dyed fabric.  As I created this quilt, I imagined looking through an arbor toward the heavens.

This quilt was juried into Bethesda Foundation’s 5th Annual Juried Exhibition.
