Alice in Wonderland was written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. A story does not endure for 155 years without capturing the imagination of generations. It is the story of a world turned on it’s head. It begs us to question everything we know, throw away our assumptions and succumb to nonsense. The loosest grip on reality wins!
Wonderland captures the most essential nature of what I want my fabric to be and why I quilt... escapism. When the weight of the world is too much I turn to needle and thread. This collection focuses on some of the most memorable themes and characters from the story. Our two main characters for the collection are Alice, of course, and the Red Queen. Alice sits in a sweet wreath of daisies with her cat Dinah on her shoulder. In the background are the white rabbits poised to lead Alice down the rabbit hole.
