Aquarius celebrates curves cut freehand without a ruler. Creating lines and shapes directly out of fabric is a liberating dialogue with my materials. I started with the central pod shape, which might be an abstract bird, with blue air rushing underneath it. Freemotion quilting in a variety of motifs adds texture.
