Dance of the Fairest

Mary Lischalk

Hand dyed fabrics by quilter, machine appliqué, embroidered and quilted using wool batting. The lady slipper is hand painted. This quilt was constructed as part of a challenge for the 62nd Annual Orchid Show in Miami, Florida. I chose the lady slipper to honor wild orchids.

Light is the Color of Life

Mary Lischalk

Hand dyed fabrics, machine pieced, quilted, appliquéd and embroidered, machine lace (figure) and trapunto. All my life I have loved the tactile and visual quality of fabrics. With this quilt I moved past traditional uses to create a piece which communicates the love of the world around us.
