Green Britain #17
This small wall hanging is my folk art version of the Union Jack flag, made from a patchwork of various cotton fabrics (one or two may be cotton mix). Some of the fabrics are reused/recycled.
This textile piece is my aspiration for the UK. We've got a long way to go! The color green now has a double meaning, and the fact that it includes reused fabrics and handwork expresses my own personal philosophy.
The wall hanging was machine pieced, layered with wadding and a backing piece, and hand quilted. A binding strip was added, together with a small card with the title, year and my details on the reverse.
The piece is tea dyed to give an 'aged' and wrinkled appearance to the surface.
