Hurt No Living Thing

Hurt No Living Thing

This is a pieced quilt featuring a monoprinted screen print surrounded by my hand dyed and discharged cotton fabrics. The text which gives the quilt its title is a quote from a poem by Christina Rossetti. Her words about ‘moth with dusty wing’ resonated with me – it speaks of their fragility. It has been block printed with additional hand painted detail. The quilting is largely free motion machine stitch and there is lots of hand quilting and knotting too.
