Fireflies
15" x 17.5"   NFS

This quilt was included in the Ohio Designer Craftsmen's "Best of 2011" show.

 

Beads, buttons, shiny objects and glow-in-the-dark embellishments are just some of the items trapped between the dark fabric background and the black sheer netting on top.  The glow-in-the-dark and shiny embellishments represent the fireflies that appear against the dark backgrounds.  Glow-in-the-dark thread is used over the shiny silver fabric in the middle of the quilt. Hanging rod included, and will hang on a single nail.

Below is a close up photo and a close up of the glow-in-the-dark parts.
