Bars and Stripes #3 - Red, White and Blue Stripy Wall Hanging

This is my latest wall hanging, entirely hand sewn, and incorporating repurposed textiles. It is inspired by the work of the Gees Bend quilters of America.


 The piece is cut, pieced, layered with batting and a backing fabric, then hand quilted. It then has a hanging sleeve and label added to the reverse before the whole item is tea dyed to give it an 'aged' and wrinkled appearance.



This wall hanging is available from my Fire Horse Textiles shop, priced at £125 + shipping.
