Circe

Circe quilt by Marilyn Belford

Circe (40" x 60") 2006

In Greek mythology, Circe was a sorceress living on the island of Aeaea. In Homer’s Odyssey she invited Odysseus’ crew to a feast, the wine laced with one of her magical potions, and she turned them all into swine with a wand after they gorged themselves on it.

How It Was Made

Commercial cotton fabric was applied with fusible web, and further embellished with thread. No paints were used.
