I recently sold this quilt to a collector. The center area is painted and has thunderbirds and scrolled shapes.
It is a layered piece that incorporates slashed muslin, various cotton prints, cording, and other embellishments.
The binding is a lame.
It is unusual for me to use embellishments on my quilts. This one uses them in what I feel is a tasteful way, as part of the overall design of the composition.
