The theme for 2013 for MQS was “Dream Catcher” so that started the creative juices for Claudia to create “Time to Catch A Dream” for her “Show Quilt” 2013.
This quilt represents the Native American dream catcher. The rich colors of nature, the relaxing muted colors much like the sands of the desert. But there is more. Not only do you see the pieced circle of the dream catcher with pieced feathers and beads. But you also see the border with real feathers, beads, sinew and jewels, all the elements you would find in a dream catcher. The intricate quilting gives texture, reminiscent of designs found on Navajo weavings on blankets and rugs. The couching defines the intricate workings of the dream catcher.
