(Front, and back) Dear Santa, this one is my favorite.

 

This one is the largest. Top, front. Bottom image, back.

In love with Los Angeles-based textile artist Ashley Thayer. Her extreme color fetish (she cites Morris Louis as an influence) and affinity for geometry and tie-dye is incredible, and I love the beachy, laid-back surfer vibe of her quilts.

Each quilt design is a variation of a traditional American block pattern using individually dyed fabrics; no two pieces are uniform. Each quilt reflects Ashley’s interest in flattening the perception of light and shadow and sunlight penetrating water.  She dyes all the fabric, sometimes multiple times, using low immersion and tie dye techniques.  All of Ashley’s quilts are hand pieced, sewn, and quilted in her studio on a very basic Singer sewing machine.”
