Quilt the Swamp 2009: Focus in the Swamp

Quilt the Swamp, an annual fiber show, opened at Bluebonnet Swamp in Baton Rouge on January 13, 2009 and ran through February 8, 2009. Many of the artists are members of the Contemporary Fiber Artists of Louisiana. The show was curated by Michael Young of Baton Rouge. The 2009 theme was "Focus in the Swamp." Each piece was inspired by a photograph by John Hartgerink, a local photographer who has taken hundreds of (wonderful) photographs in the Bluebonnet Swamp. Each piece was hung with the corresponding photo.

Convict Caterpillar by Sharon Crary The trim on the vest is fuzzy caterpillars end to end. The vest is felted, and the caterpillar feet are tiny red beads.
