Machine pieced, HAND QUILTED.
Measures approximately 17 x 30.5 inches.
My flying carpets are among my top selling designs. Each is one of a kind.
Here is the story behind my carpet series:
As much as I adore patchwork, some fabrics are simply too beautiful to scissor and call for a whole cloth project. Kaffe Fassett's recent line of fabric reminded me of my travels to Russia and Turkey and my adventures buying carpets from the central Asian merchants of Daghestan, Uzbekistan and the other stans! A trip to Istanbul weighed me down with beautiful kilims and suzanis. These memories led me to create my carpet quilts.
This one features lovely Kaffe Fassett Turkish Delight fabric in a fun orange/aqua colorway, some Paisley Stripe and Mirage Stripe as the fringe.
Just in case you forget you are flying, I backed it with Kaffe's Clouds in pastel, another current obsession. I then densely hand quilted into the pattern.
This would be lovely as a wall hanging, so I've attached small plastic rings (see last photo), and will include hardware for hanging.
On a wall or on a little table, may my flying carpet transport you.
