This whimsical wall hanging is created from my hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics. It is my original design and constructed by me in my home studio.

The background hues are soft blues and purples and the hand-dyed border fabric and binding is a medium blue. The reeds and grasses are stitched in threads of various weights (many of these are also hand-dyed) as are the spun yarns. The small dragonflies are free-motion stitched in thread while the large blue dragonfly (hand-dyed cheesecloth wings) flaunts its regal colours with dramatic sequined eyes and a beaded body. Hand stitching accents add texture and interest to the grasses.

The back of the wall hanging is made of a commercial fabric (blue) and it has a hanging sleeve at the top of the back. This piece has a two-part history: I thought it was finished but after having it hanging for a week or two in my home I decided it needed some more layers added to it and this is when I added the sheer swirls with metallic bits encased in them and extra beading. In adding the swirls of organza, I stitched over the original hanging sleeve and so constructed a new sleeve after the swirls were added. If you consider this an "oops" that would deter you from enjoying the piece then please do not purchase it; however, this is just on the back of it and if I didn't tell you about it you wouldn't see it -- but I want you to know about it :) I will be pleased to send you extra photos of the back if you would like to see it before purchase.

This art quilt measures 21.5" x 23".

The cost of shipping is an estimate only -- if it ends up costing less to ship it, I will refund you the difference.

The copyright of this picture remains with the artist -- you are purchasing only the artwork.

PS. The wall hanging looks off-square only because of the angle of the photo.
