Add to Collection

"Sleeping Bear Dune Lakeshore" is a landscape art quilt of the Lake Michigan shoreline. This large work consists of four individual panels depicting a beach scene which all connect into one large panoramic view. Working from a photograph Ann captures a beautiful Lake Michigan sunset, sparkiling water, dune grass in the breeze, majestic birch trees with Sleeping Bear Dunes in the distance. The viewer is attracted and drawn into this art piece by the vivid color, warm textures and details of this favorite scene. Ann's collage technique incorporates traditional cotton and batik fabrics along with other fibers including linen, silk, yarns, polyester netting and angelina fiber for added texture. Techniques also include raw edge fusible applique and free-motion machine quilting.
