On Raven's Wing - January 2012

On Raven's Wing - Private Collection

On Raven's Wing - Detail
"On Raven's Wing" was a challenge quilt for Desert Quilters of Nevada - Art Quilt's Etc. group.  The challenge was "feathers."

The design was made using two photographs; one of a raven and the other of a feather detail.

The background feathers were quilted with a walking foot, while the raven was free motion quilted.

Fabric paints were applied to the raven's beak and to the feathers. Machine embroidery threads were used to add a reflective sheen to the feathers and the raven's eye.
