St Stephen quilt 001.jpg

St. Stephen quilt, mainly hand-pieced and hand-appliqued, with a bone rose in Stephen's hands, wishing well with a golden bell, bucket hanging clear to Hell where there are embroidered skeletons, Calliope woman (muse of poetry) reading a book called "Curious Sense," high green chilly winds, shafts of lavender, ivy, manzanita, William Tell and speeding arrow. I took the image of Stephen from a reliquary of the first St. Stephen, who was stoned to death. I had fun with this one!

Wow, I love it.
Have you done one for Dark Star or any others?

If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, "Dark Star: Transitive Nightfall of Diamonds" is my picture. I'll upload a bigger picture in the fan photos soon. My "China Cat Sunflower" has already been posted. I've also done a "Scarlet Begonias." Some day I'll do a "Dead Man's Hand" using all the references to cards in Dead songs. The quilt is about 5' by 3 1/2' and it took me about a year or so to make it.
