Summer Tanager: Bohemian Tapestry Series. 12 X 22 panel. This is another in the series of what I call my Bohemian Tapestries. The reason I call them this is because I use a lot of scrap material that would seem to have no relation to each other. But somehow, when you cut them into scrappy pieces, lay them out on a muslin foundation and then cover the surface with free motion quilting, it seems to work. I have provided a bright songbird as a focal point to tell a story of a summer day. The bird has been threadpainted onto a peltex foundation and appliqued to the tapestry. This can be purchased through The Polish Pottery Shoppe  This can be seen on Off The Wall Fridays SOLD.
