This is the first art quilt I made, it was made as a banner for my husband. We are members of the Society of Creative Anachronism http://www.sca.org/ , a medieval research and re-creating group. And I made this using some of the elements and colors of his device in the organization. The background is striped pieced, the bear is raw edged appliqued and with some fabric painting for shading. 33"X21 1/2"
