Please feel free to visit my etsy shop, which features pin cushions, archival prints of quilts, dolls, felt brooches and different quilts than those published here: ClothCompany.
This small quilt (roughly 7" x 8") features the hand-embroidered word, "free", while an antique astrology map transferred onto silk, with vintage lace and sparkling tulle, serves as a moon. The Liberty figure comes from a polyester shirt - perhaps from the 70's.
Pieced, appliqued, hand and machine- quilted. $125.00
'Sanctuary V - Tribute to Steve Irwin'
About 3' x 3 1/2' $425
Steve Irwin's energetic, respectful, and brave explorations of nature provided my boys with many hours of entertainment and education when they were little. When he died, it seemed right to quilt a quilt in his honor. Pieced, using fabrics produced in Australia and prints featuring aquatic creatures. The central aqua door represents the entry to mystery, and hopefully, Sanctuary.
