Fantail Flutter – Jeanette Gillies



At Jeanette’s holiday home in Makaroa the flax grows abundantly and attracts the native birds. A bumper year of flax flowers led to the creation of this detailed quilt. Fabrics have been hand-dyed, some screen printed,  machine quilted and embroidered. The Fantail were hand painted, stitched and appliquéd, all these approaches result in a complexly worked surface to this Art Quilt. It is very painterly with the amount of subtle colour selection in various sections.
