7755 – A Tisket, A Tasket   ($77.99)

Width: 9"   Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Commercial batiks, vintage hand embroidered table scarf, piping, machine quilted, hand sewn binding.

Artist Statement: I bought this vintage table scarf at a garage sale for a dollar or two with the intention of making it into a Priority Quilt. Unfortunately, I have no idea who did the hand embroidery but I liked the idea that it could live life anew as something fresh and different than the maker ever intended. Since there are two hand embroidered ends to the table scarf, there are two quilts that are the same.
