Here's my new little quilt. It came about as a result of a hand-dyed mono-print sample I made while teaching mono-prints in a dye class. After the sample was washed I found it intriguing and after looking at it for a few days I began seeing it as a background for a village of teepees with smoke rising. I had many suggestions as to what to name this quilt. In the end, I researched Native American words. The name Awendela means "daylight" or "morning." Since I have had teepees on my mind (see previous posts) it should be obvious why this quilt was born. It's not earth-shattering, but it was fun to make.
