Lions

The piece was inspired by a trip to Tanzania. After taking 2,400 photos there I came up with this majestic family of lions. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. It takes me about 5 months to complete a piece of this size. Most difficult part is finding the right material. Unlike painters who can just mix the right color I have to locate it somewhere or dye it myself. There are twenty different fabrics just for the male lion's mane.
