41.5" x 43.5"
The Gathering was made in the Spring of 2008 by collaging numerous images, both photographs and paintings, in Photoshop. Three panels were printed from my computer onto silk and assembled along with a border hand dyed to extend the colors from the central design. I especially enjoyed quilting the numerous feathers, fronds, and ferns in the borders.
The Gathering was awarded second place in the Digital Imagery category at the 2008 International Quilt Association Show in Houston, Texas, and Best Use of Color at the 2009 Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. It's featured in the 2010 Martingale calendar of IQA Award-Winning Quilts.
