sq Dextrin Squiggle Breakdown


snuggle quilt, approximately 42"x 72"
Hand-dyed cotton fabrics, wool batting.
Front: pieced; Back: pieced; tied.

The main fabric on the front of this quilt was made using potato dextrin. The two fabrics on the back are both breakdown silkscreen piece, produced by painting thickened dye on a silkscreen, letting the pattern dry, and then printing through that screen with more thickened dye. Each pull of the screen makes a different image, and a rich mysterious cloth is produced!
