April Showers

This quilt was my first venture into the use of recycled clothing and fabrics.

The tulips are cut from flowered fabric and appliqued on a background cut from a dress shirt. The leaves are from fabric scraps, the vines from another shirt. Both are appliqued.


The piece is machine quilted with iridescent thread. The inside border is hand-embroidered with metallic thread and beaded.
