This is a small art quilt that will not see life as a wall hanging, but as a book cover ... I will post more on that, and final photos, once it has been presented to the organization that commissioned it. In order to make this as durable as possible, I had to reject some of the techniques and fibres that I might have liked to use in this piece. Because it will be handled (although not heavily) I felt that I should use woven fabric and stitching to achieve the look I wanted. The fabric is all hand-dyed or hand-painted ... some of it by me, some by others.
There is still more work to be done on it, but I am pleased with how it is developing.
