Here is the original pattern by Threadbear of Australia. I generally don't like my blocks to line up in rows and columns like tidy little soldiers so I deconstructed each block, created some others, and adapted some from the original quilt which is in the Metropolitan Museum.
Here is the Caswell carpet which hangs in the Met which is made of wool blocks embroidered in chain-stitch
Note the fruit basket on the left had side. This basket has been reinterpreted as a hooked rug, and needleppont, a folk art painting on wood just to name a few. I decided to put that block on myCaswell quilt. Here is the original clipped and turned .
The ants have found this sweet fruit and have left the picnic where they began.
2 more blocks, deconstructed from one shape to another
A singing bird but I am no musician so don't hold me accountable for the song.
Lots of the blocks in this quilt tell little stories.
This quilt is a treasure! It doesn't look anything like the original pattern. Thanks for sharing her beauty!ReplyDelete
