Celtic Windows 53" x 30" 2009

In Ireland, I was fascinated by the use of stone and prehistoric symbolism, which was freely incorporated into Christian art.  The background of this quilt is velour upholstery fabric which I painted, layered with mossy silk roving, and heavily stitched to look like old walls.  I added pieces of felt covered with painted fusible web which I heat-distorted.  The windows are my painted fabrics with foiled and stitched fragments of Celtic symbols.  Painted puff paint frames each window for more texture.
