Pippa Wardman - Love Hurts
I have struggled with my daughter leaving home this year. It is time for her to fly free and make her own way in the world. I knew this day would come but I miss her so much. I used this quote from Shakespeare to express my feelings of sadness each time I say goodbye to her, although I know she is happy in her new life. The kite design uses framed embroidered text similar to the Edwin & Mary Bloomfield Coverlet. It also uses appliqué, with partial Maltese crosses and a tassel, all in colours similar to the coverlet.
Materials and techniques:
Commercial cotton fabrics with wool viscose felt batting.
Hand appliqué, hand embroidery and machine quilting.
