While the artwork I create is very different from most other textiles I see, I greatly appreciate the artistry in every kind of quilt.
This historical piece displayed at the International Quilt Museum and Study Center pretty much blew my mind. The technical skill is incredible.
Here is a photographic reproduction of the painting the textile is based on.
The 1860 House of Commons after original painting by John Phillip 1817 – 1867
I’m currently working with a little hand appliqué. I’m telling you right now, my skill level is not even close to this.
Tiny pieces. Invisible stitches. Beautiful color gradations.
