A while back, Linda’s prompt had to do with things that we had hanging on our walls – or art we owned or something like that…
At any rate, I didn’t share some things I have hung that are made of fabric.
In the living room, I have an art quilt of trees that I really love:
In the dining room, we have framed some piecework that my husband’s great-grandmother had done. She was planning to make them into a coverlet, but never got around to it. His mom had the top piece in her cedar chest, and we cut it into pieces that worked with frames. The cloth she used was very interesting. It came from sample books from Arnold Print Works, where B’s grandfather worked. I love to look at the different fabric prints of the time. It is a bit strange to see some swastikas, though. The fabric is so old that it was well before the time of Hitler when the symbol was called a Teutonic cross, among other names.
