Hearts Alive #2 is one of Sonya Lee Barrington's latest pieces of silk work. It is a small piece measuring only 12" x 12." It is made of dupioni silk, machine pieced, and hand appliqued. Sonya hand quilted it with copper metallic thread and embellished it with Mother of Pearl vintage buttons, glass beads and other objects. It hangs freely from a stand created from copper tubing.
