Project Description

Giclée print for sale only. This original quilt is not for sale at this time.

41 x 41

Robber’s Roost features ten crows.  Three of these curious birds are holding found objects which can be seen by looking closely at the quilt. The background is a purchased fabric to which the outer circle has been over painted.  The silk and cotton oak leaves were cut out of Joanne’s iced dyed fabrics. The texture of the tree was created with heat distressed puff paints and Texture Magic.  The crows were thread painted and the feathers were highlighted with glitter paints before being attached one feather at a time.
