The song lyrics: "The River of God sets our hearts to dancing..." were part of the inspiration for this art piece.
Original, one-of-a-kind MarveLes design on vibrant, original, hand-dyed and painted fabric of 100% pure Kona cotton. Feature colors are coral, tangerine orange, bright grass green. Smaller bits of color added into the mix include red, purple and brown... Smaller batik fabric pieces, are gently curved throughout, adding visual interest, color and contrast.
LOTS of fun movement in this piece to emulate the river in the free motion couching (with hand-dyed yarns from Blue Heron Yarn company) and bobbin drawing with metallic threads, as well as beautiful Angelina iridescent fibers and more.
I tried something new by attaching a gorgeous silk velvet, hand-dyed, in deep tones of rich red and coral-orange for the outer final binding. I love the touchability! The edges of the quilt are rounded off instead of square.
Size: 25" wide by 21" tall. This could be hung as a wall quit from either width or length, or as a beautiful compliment to any table type setting.
