This quilt was inspired by the colours and devastation of the bushfires which ravage Australia every summer.
The original photo was broken up into a grid and then into 9 different shades of yellow through to red. Each 6 block was created as a collage of different fabric and then pieced together. One pieced a hand dyed organza fabric was placed over the quilt and a design of a tree was stitched by Nicole Bridges and then cut away. The quilting was also done by Nicole Bridges. Once the quilting was complete further highlighting of some of the details was done with fabric paint
