This art quilt is kind of a mix between a diva and a country girl at heart… The heart itself is made out of pure wool (from a blood red sheep!?) stitched into a heart form (but not felted) with glittery yarn and pearls, and on each of the embroidery’s vertical sides I’ve sewn a fancy and super soft feather boa… Diva Luxury + Simple Country Style = true love!
Mixing materials that doesn’t really go together is fun, especially when you find the contrasts. Like adding the thin white fabric to the read quite hard woven fabric, or stitching hard black stitches on a white background…
This embroidery I’m calling “XOXO I love you” heArt Quilt! It’s full of contrasts and contradictions – just like love, but it also has it soft spots… Tender spots to stroke and pay special attention to!
PS: I’ve added this to iHanna’s Etsy Shop, please check it out out if you have the time, coz I would appreciate it. Maybe you could find a spot in your home for it? Every heart needs a good loving home as you know.
