pieced, embellished quilt – approx. 2 ft. x 3 ft.
Making this quilt was a brand, new adventure for me. Instead of using just commercial fabrics, I also used sections of an (acrylic on canvas) abstract work I had painted. Once removed from its canvas, I cut up the painting and used it as I would any fabric.
Embellishements incl: 3 metal wheels; colourful beads; tiny metal triangles; embroidery floss; primitive-looking gold-coloured discs; polished, reddish stones; rectangular-cut purple-ish shells; metallic thread; etc.
