'Joyful Flowers' is a unique piece of art work designed and made by Abbienne.
Cotton batiks & Lace! Each block has been made individually using 'Pile & Plunder' Machine Reverse Applique. The blocks are each A3 in size with sashings and borders added in a traditional construction. The sashings all have hand painted lace attached by hand within them. The finished quilt top has been layered with a cotton batting then handquilted and embellished.
The basic colour used is black to enhance the bright tones of the hand dyed batiks, some of which I have dyed. A unique item, if only because each peice of batik fabric has it's own color properties, never to be repeated......that, and I doubt even I could repeat exactly the many many hours of work within it!
I love this quilt, but I need to find it a Joyful, happy home, I have no more room! This is best suited as a visual item.
