My Quilt for "IT'S TIME FOR COLOUR" - CQA/ACC Invitational Travelling Exhibition

In my print series "Printing the Alphabet - Extraordinary 
Prints from Ordinary Objects" I am exploring prints, 
textures and colour using everyday objects. 

For this quilt I chose to print with an onion.

"It's Time For Colour" will travel to approximately 20
different venues across Canada and be displayed at 
Quilt Canada 2015 in Lethbridge Alberta. The 40 quilts 
will be auctioned off, with the proceed going to 
The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada.

I printed with an onion - black pigment on white cotton.

Once the onion print was dry, I used
Colour Vie pigments to overpaint
with a rainbow of colours.

I enlarged the onion image, made a silk screen, and
used it to screen print the large onion image on top
using metallic copper pigment.

Finished quilt 12" x 16"
