I’ve completed the commission for the wallhanging that will be given as a birthday gift. I was asked to create a quilt that references fashion.
The shop carries men and women’s fashions and is located in an old stone building. I actually had the outer border designed and created before the central four blocks.
I like the way the 2 shades of grey fabric curve up suggesting a wall.
The large floral (Kaffe Fassete fabric I think) seemed to be too obvious, so I cut it on the diagonal and insert very thin strips of grey so that it looks like the flowers are behind a fence.
The hat has been decorated and is worthy of a royal tea party. I used a variety of hand dyed silk ribbon from Nell’s Emboidery. A ribbon flower completes the look.
I hope the recipient enjoys her gift.
