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.
