URBAN AFRICA QUILTED


I have a lot to say about this piece,but I'll keep it short.
The setting fabric is linen.

I wanted the quilting to be...more pronounced so I chose a dark 40 wt thread.

I am not a fan of dense quilting and I wanted this to feel less quilted and more stitched without the actual hand stitching.

The batting is flannel...one layer so it would be flat.


It is still very heavy and hopefully the weight will help it to hang flat.
I think it would look impressive on the right wall.
Thanks for listening.
