Family Crest and My Monogram

Here is a couple of my latest creations. The first one is a wholecloh silk quilt based on my son's sketch - I enjoyed making this so much!

We could not come up with a decent name for it, but I love the idea of it becoming our family crest :))

I have also been sketching some new patterns lately, inspired by Marina Bowater's book "Decorative Art of Russia". This is my monogram based on Gospel illustrations from 12th and 13th centuries Kiev and Galitch.

I am especially pleased with thread shading on this one, it really looks like it has been stitched in silver and gold :))

Thank you for visiting!
