Patched Up


Texan Maura Ambrose is reviving the art of quilting, combining her handiwork with an artfully crafted appreciation of natural dyes. Ambrose literally has her hands in the whole process – creating and fermenting dyes from herbs and plants in her backyard and others’, like indigo, osage, and pomegranates. She then pieces together and hand-stitches beautifully graphic designs for her large quilts, documenting her whole process along the way.
