This is the 6th in my deep space series of art quilts inspired by Hubble images. I chose the Butterfly Nebula because of it’s beauty and dynamic energy that is a force of nature. The quilt is 35″w x 39″h and was painted in Photoshop with the stars designed in Illustrator and merged with the painting. It was then output on a large format printer on cotton cloth and heavily thread painted doing free motion quilting on a Bernina sewing machine. It took 2 1/2 months to complete.
