Delightful Dahlias Day and Night

18" w. x 51" h.
I grow many kinds of dahlias in my garden, and photograph them for use in my art. Often when I lecture and show the backs of my quilts which are done in black fabric with the quilting thread the same color as used on the front, people suggest that I show the backs rather than the fronts. So I decided to make a reversible quilt featuring both the back and the front imagery on both sides. Disperse dyed polyester, hand dyed cottons, black commercial cotton. Machine pieced and machine quilted. The image to the left shows both sides of the piece.
