She shines on thieves on the garden wall,
On streets and fields and harbor quays,
And birdies asleep in the forks of trees.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
a primitive quilted fabric from the civil war era taken from a Victorian skirt provides the base for delicate fibrous layers and multi textures in this celestial art quilt.
Antique Victorian laces, primitive hemp fabric, vintage text pages, an antique watch face adorned with a victorian shoe button, antique mother of pearl buttons, fresh water pearls and tiny treasures light up the night illuminating antique crystal buttons, a shell fragment and pebbles from the sea wrapped in silk fibers and scrim.
Silk sari ribbons embellished with french knots of silk.mother of pearl sequins and tiny glass beads twist around a silk carrier rod and a rusted wind chime with a tassel of silk fibers and glass beads and a secret crystal clapper nestled inside.
Layers of hand dyed gossamer silk fabrics with hand stitching subtly reveal bits of vintage text, fibers and a couple of porcupine quills peeking out from underneath. A tiny nest with a single egg nestled quietly among the blossoms...
A bit of found driftwood with a brass chain supports this 9" x 9" art quilt for hanging in the wall.
