At The Market ~ I love the craftsmanship that goes into the wall hangings made by the women in Peru!

And I love all of the colorful fabrics used in each piece.  This wall hanging was done by Mercada from Peru.

~ Working On The Farm ~ This wall hanging was originally on a white t-shirt I bought several years ago. Using a seam ripper, I carefully removed the art work from the t-shirt  and placed it on this shaded pink fabric to preserve it. I hand quilted around all of the animals, the people, the house, the carrot patch, the stone wall, and all of the other special details in the picture.

I wanted to match the binding of the quilt with the fabric.  This is the first time I made a specialized binding like this, and I think it compliments the Peruvian Art Work nicely. The off white and blue bundle near the carrot patch is actually a person bent over weeding the carrot patch!

 I wanted to share the artistry of people around the world with you!

Have a great day!
