So you remember a couple weeks ago I mentioned the Lark Books Quilt it contest?
Entrants will create an original Quilt of any size that incorporates at least three of the following five required elements
Silver fabric, thread, item
I sent in my entry in and got the ok to post it, so here it is
Take These Broken Wings 12″ x 12″
It has a background of used tea bags gel mediumed to fabric.
I painted the color with transparent washes of textile paint.
After quilting it with wool felt I sewed an embossed metal wing made from a sheet of aluminum layered over a piece of copper and a wing shaped piece of wool felt to give it more stability. A silver brad pierced through copper creates his shoulder joint.
