Welcome to the Quilting Board!
The symbolism will mean a lot.
What an honor, you did a beautiful quilt that many generations will enjoy, congratulations.
Quilting makes me happy!..
It is a beautiful piece of art. What an honor to have your work hang in the museum.
Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
Very impressive, congratulations on a superb project!!
Concurrently, the other one is a Viking helmet. I was told by a local who runs a Nordic Gift Shop in Poulsbo - they DID NOT HAVE HORNS as commonly depicted. She showed me several historical books that showed the viking rulers wore helmets without the horns.
I used raffia for the cedar bark hat and wove it into the shape. I used silk dupioni for the viking helmet and decorative stitching, then stuffed it a bit to give it some shape.
How wonderful! I'd say you accomplished the task with great talent. And I'd guess that this gorgeous quilt will be around for many many generations to come. Congratulations!
Measure once. Cut twice. Cover up with mess with lots of quilting. Voila! Art!
very creative,you did a terrific job
Awesome quilt! It was so nice of you to "step up" and commit to doing it!
God bless you!
UPDATE!!!! My commissioned quilt "The Poulsbo Quilt" is now on permanent display in the foyer of the Suquamish Museum!!! For those of you who live in Kitsap/Pierce/King/Snohomish Counties in Western Washington, this is a must see museum! The Suquamish Tribe did a beautiful job of displaying the artifacts of their culture. I am so proud to have some of my own artwork hanging in a museum!
