At the Edge of the Deep Dark Wood

During our 6 week Lockdown in april 202 I joined a stitch challenge and this little quilt is the result of one of the challenges. The challenge was to use old linens and I still have hesitance in cutting into the work of a former needlewoman even though i have sourced the vintage linens to us in my art work. I find it easier to use crotchet medallions as in this piece. the background fabric is some sun dyed fabric using a stencil on top of a piece of sun dye treated batik. The bird in the front is a laminated teabag print that was coloured once applied to the fabric
