This is the second in a series of Talisman quilts I made a few years ago. It was exhibited at Festival of Quilts at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and has been in storage ever since – seems a pity to be hidden away! I wanted to evoke a sense of a primitive protective spirit. The fabrics are discharged linen and cotton with silk details. The text was created using painted fusible webbing. The quilt features lots of both hand and machine stitching. The three little beaded and embellished pockets are devised to hold precious secrets!
