The theme for this challenge is Architexture.
"I will lift up mine eyes". Thread sketching on silk. A3 size.
This then is the finished quilt as it will hang on the wall.
Having only joined this group within the last 2 weeks, I didn't have time to take my own photo, so the quilt is based on a photograph by Jan van der Crabben, accessed through Wikipedia, and covered by the "Creative Commons Attribution - Share Alike 2.0 Generic Licence" which allows the sharing or adaptation of images with attribution. (The resulting works, such as this quilt, are then covered by the same licence)
I like the raw edges of the quilt and didn't want to confine it with binding (how appropriate that word seems in this context!), so I gave the "idea" of an edge with some gold embroidered trim in the top left hand corner, with lines of sewn gold thread extending along the top and left edges.
I finished the opposite corner with a lace truncated cross - again discovered amid the stash of silks.
Wonderful and thought-provoking theme. I am looking forward to the next one with this group!
