Victoria Meets Woodstock

Victoria Meets Woodstock

35.5" x 42"  2009

A hand-dyed cotton sateen panel from Bryerpatch Studios is the base for this machine-embroidered wall hanging.  Lots of black embroideries (from Martha Pullen Co.) and black free-motion quilting create the appearance of black Victorian lace, superimposed over a tie-dyed Woodstock-look fabric.  I had made a scalloped, machine-embroidered free-standing lace border, but the quilt ended up too small for the border.  So I used that black lace on a jacket I made for myself!  To edge the quilt, I machine-embroidered individual little free-standing lace flowers (from Zundt Designs) in the colors of the fabric, and stitched them on the outer edge.

This quilt won 2nd place in the Wall Quilts - Machine Quilted category at the 2011 AQS Knoxville show.
