Silver Thistle

2019 / 110 x 87 cm / machine patched and hand appliqu├ęd, machine and hand quilted

In wintertime the silver thistles shine upon the dry forestground. The glimmer of the blossom is from pearl to silver. The seeds are like a multitude of little dark balls in silverthreads and the leaves of the blossoms are each made separate and appliqued in just a few points. Special japanese fabric is used for the background in the colors of a winter forestground. Very old fabric buttons are the seeds in stripes of silk organza.
