Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is the triptych that completes the series that I began 2015. Chrysalis Awakening was the first in this series and was created  for the “It’s Time for Colour Show.”  Quilters who had participated in the National Juried Show in 2015 were asked if they were interested in creating an art piece to be donated to raise funds for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

I knew I wanted to complete the series, it was finally completed and I entered the triptych into the National Juried show in 2016. It was accepted into the Art – Naturescapes, Pictorial Wall Quilts.

This was a fun project to work on and it was interesting to see the visitors’ reactions when they noticed the hidden surprises!
