“A garden should make you feel you’ve entered privileged space — a place not just set apart but reverberant — and it seems to me that, to achieve this, the gardener must put some kind of twist on the existing landscape, turn its prose into something nearer poetry.”
― Michael Pollan, Second Nature: A Gardener’s Education
I had difficulty finding a place to photograph the whole thing – this almost worked! It is 96×96 and fits nicely on my queen size bed. This was a real challenge for me because it was using a very different palette than I’m used to using and very bright colors. The fabrics are Kaffe Fassett’s with some hand dyed batiks and some purchased batiks.
I actually had my doubts about it as I was making it. I took it to a retreat with a group of friends and they gave me encouragement to keep on.
