OH WISE ONE

Width: 9.5" Length: 14"

Designer: Adapted from a paper piecing pattern for scrapbooks created by Erikia Ghumm and published in Scrapbooks, etc. Written permission received.

Materials/Techniques: Background is hand painted cotton, using Jaquard Lumiere paints. Owl is appliquéd, using various upholstery scraps. Eyes are black buttons on a scrap of vintage silk blouse fabric. Moon is made of Angelina. Quilt is bound with 8 strands of fiber and ribbon. Mr. Wise One is calm, cool and inscrutable and would love to be hung on your wall to keep you on your toes.

Artist's Statement: Some pictures were just meant to be made into fiber art and this was definitely one! Dedicated to my nephew Tim, who is thoughtful and insightful and isn't afraid to speak his mind.
