Quilt no 41


More is Less
Felt as wadding (batting) covered in scraps of procyon-dyed silk & cotton organzas sewn with various embroidery stitches with variegated coloured threads.  The quilt is then embellished all over with embroidery, buttons, etc.  The backing is a second square of felt covered with a piece of cotton, then the layers are quilted from the back through the cotton backing, the second layer of felt and partway through the first layer of felt so the quilting stitches do not show on the front.
