This is a tiny little art quilt measuring less than 8" x 10", I think. It is made from felted wool appliqued onto a canvas basecloth. The wool is secured with machine and hand embroidery and there a few wee buttons and french knot Queen Anne's Lace for extra embellishment. You can read more details about the construction here. This mini was sent off to Nanette but we also shared it's image with all of our family and friends because we used the photo as our Christmas card in 2010!
Here is the inspiration photo for the little quilt, taken not far from my parent's cottage on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada.
Near Stokes Bay, Ontario
This is quite different work than many of you are used to seeing here on Poppyprint - I hope to do some more work with wool over the winter months.
