This is the fifth in a series of art quilts featuring hand cross stitched center medallion panels.
The quilt top is hand quilted by the quilt artist. The blue angel has been cross stitched by hand by an expert needleworker.
The fine, hand quilting was done by the quilting artist to complement the overall design of the piece. The yellow triangles and black frame draws your attention to the blue Angel and the blue borders draw out more of the colors in her dress. A muted Oriental print is incorporated between the gold flecked blue fabric.
The quilting stitches are heirloom-quality and greatly enhance the overall design of the piece. This is finely detailed hand quilting that is only achieved after years of practice. The hand quilting design in the burgundy and black swirled border gives this piece it’s finishing touch. The final border looks like piled satin.
This is truly a piece of art that will grace your walls for years to come. The back of the wall hanging is covered traditionally, with unbleached muslin and is signed and dated by the quilter.
Hanging sleeves and corners are already sewed on the back for ease of display. All fabrics in the wall hanging are 100% cotton. The batting used is polyester.
This wall hanging is machine washable and dryable. Complete care instructions are included as well as inexpensive directions for hanging the piece “invisibly”. Crafted in a smoke-free and animal-free environment.
