Now for the machine quilting. All parallel lines following the various curves of the insets and the butterfly wings.
The thing that I like best about this is that it's not cute. The butterfly is in a somewhat awkward position, and it's large enough to be even a little menacing, like those huge cecropia moths that come at you out of the darkness. Maybe it should be "Rusted Moth"--but the label is on already.
I'm thinking it could be hung horizontally--but most exhibits don't have that kind of space allocated. Maybe I'll add a second hanging sleeve.
Nice binding that almost matches the rusted areas, made from a formal gown I wore to something years ago. All in all, a satisfying production.
Early next month we'll be flying to Tucson for the opening of SAQA's "Connecting Our Natural Worlds" exhibit at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. The exhibit will tour internationally, so Flyover 6: Glacier will be gone for 3 years. We decided it would be fun to wave it goodbye, and explore Tucson as a bonus..
