Made in response to a Tools theme in my Tangled Textiles group, I wanted to show how our methods may have changed over the years, e.g., we no longer use quill pens, but the words, remain.  Although this time the tool that created the words was my sewing machine.

Thread sketching and quilting in cotton on a linen background, trapunto used on the feather quill

Very clever! I like the 3d effect of the trapunto.
