This appliquéd and embroidered panel was inspired by an ancient farm building I spotted on a walk near my home. The windows had long gone and the plants and trees were invading the space. The leaves were touched with the first signs of cold weather colour. I’ve worked with a wide range of fabrics including hand dyed cotton, fine silk and tulle. There is a combination of free motion machine quilting and lots of hand stitched detail and I’ve modified some of the layers with a delicate touch of pale pastel.
The appliquéd and embroidered panel measures 13.5 inches x 13.5 inches
34cm x 34cm
It’s mounted onto a black box canvas panel which measures
15.75 inches x 15.75 inches x 1.5inches
40 cm x 40 cm x 4cm
It is ready for display and needs no frame.
