It's made from sewn-together individual pieces of cotton fabric, like a quilt top. I have mounted the work on stretcher bars, rather than quilting it. It is 28 x 24".
I designed the pattern - and it's a fantasy castle. Maybe I was reading too much Game of Thrones. I also have clear memories of visiting the ruins of castle Tintagel in England as a child, on a clear blue day, looking out over the cliffs and the Atlantic.
Piecing everything, rather then appliqueing, gives the design more depth and the dimensional quality of the seams are emphasized by the mounting. The overall design reads as a whole, but each fabric piece has an individual story, revealed as you move closer. The castle and landscape are mainly abstract batik and Kaffe Fassett prints, but you will find sea critters in the sea and in the sky, from Hoffman's Whales & Otters fabric. There's also a tiny bit of Castle Peeps fabric, to get a few pennants flying in the background.
Thanks for looking at Castle on the Cliffs.
