Cosmic Serpent

DSC09253-001

Have nearly worked through all of the hand-dyed fabrics that I won at QuiltWest a couple of years ago! The quilt is at  the Dare to Differ Exhibition in Adelaide at the moment! The statement is probably better than the quilt:

Pattern on pattern on pattern (ad infinitum if sewing skills permitted) …… a serpent writhing through the heavens. The figure represents mythological serpents common to many cultures, including the Waugal (Rainbow Serpent) of Noongar aboriginal people which is both creator and guardian. Stars quilted on the lighter yellow background symbolize a galaxy.
