A Day in the Country
It wasn’t until I had finished this quilt, much of which had been stitched outside, that I realised how close the colours were to the landscape around me. There is a mix of velvets, linens, William Morris, shirts and ticking. The velvets, although tricky to work with, add a richness to the overall texture. It is hand quilted using buttons and knotted embroidery thread.
