Oh Well

This is the complete quilt In the Spirit of Decoration. Unfortunately  it was not selected in the competition  for the Carrefour this year- wasted some money yet again, for the entry fee.. sigh... I can use it for my book on Syria as of course it was  inspired by some silk I bought in Syria and the beaten decorated copper and silver plates you encounter everywhere .

It is for sale. It measures 76 cm x 129 cm and is made from hand dyed and hand printed cloth from an original linocut- the silver discs have been hand embossed with patterns. It has been machine quilted. The price is 1,000 Euros.

here is a detail image.

What a shame - it looks beautiful.... Pity it couldn't be in Birmingham this August at Festival of Quilts- so many people would have seen it (30,000 last year). Whatever the outcome, your work still moves and inspires.

oh...what a shame, but all is not lost, you most likely will sell that handsome piece or enter it in another show. You sure are a very busy lady.
