Circles of Rain

Bee Quilt

The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.

The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.

Journal covers front and back. Trying out my new Xyron gluing machine. A contraption that puts edge to edge glue on something as you wind it through. Quite fun. Good for intricate things, fabric and ribbon.
