About This Item
Description of Item

My very good friend, Mo, decided to raw-edge appliqué some furnishing scraps onto a background of shot silk to create one of her favourite animals. She is an upholstery expert and an innovative felter but not a patchworker so she became frustrated when she realized that she would like to have added other features behind the original piece. The project was abandoned in a corner of her chaotic kitchen and mottled patches appeared on the silk which may have been caused by spray glue or even butter. When I discovered that it was an abandoned project, I added further free motion embroidery and then quilted it, adding a concentric “sun” and some inter-locking trios that made me think of the close friendship between Mo, Tania and myself. The quilting was far more decorative organic than on any previous piece. I decided to add random crystals to give the piece additional sparkle and by blending paint at the edges of the piece like a vignette, I disguised the suspect areas of ruined silk. The Hare is one of the most admired panels in the collection, even though he never got his promised background of standing stones - probably because of the lifelike expression that Mo conjured from scraps
