I am loving the slow stitching and mediation of working on this piece. A combination of boro stitching on the kantha quilt, yellow felted wool appliqués and more of the mother of pearl (MOP) button waste. A 12 x 16 feather pillow form completes it. It is for sale HERE in my Etsy Shop.

Who would have thought that ugly discharged Amish style wall quilt would end up looking like this! It was really one of those things that happens when art starts to morph into something it wants to be instead of what I want it to be.
A little paint here, more paint there and soon a fiddlehead fern quilt looks like a piece of vintage Mexican pottery. Of course, now I have to give it a new name! We used to spend winters in the Rio Grande Valley. I had used broken pottery through out my Texas garden. I have often wished for some of it for my garden here.
But back to the quilt.It has all the qualities of the primitive decorative painting on vintage pottery. I am truly in love with this now. maybe I’m not supposed to love my own work, but I hope you will forgive me this one time.Off the Wall Friday
