Scatterdays Letter X

Introducing the wonderful letter

HiddenEverything is hidden on an X-ray until viewed in the correct light.

Famous: Excalibur - I'm sure everyone has heard of the sword in the stone (thanks Google)


Alive:  Xerces, blue butterfly (thanks Google)

Crosses In Quilts: My Irish Chain Quilt is one of my favourites. Made from 'ugly' fabrics it        turned out much better that I dreamed.

Out of Asia Challenge

This weekend is the publication of our latest challenge quilts with the group Art Quilts Around the World.

I made this quilt for my middle daughter & her partner. 

The Khanda is the Sikh emblem, it consists of three objects:

  • Two swords, signify the spiritual and secular forces influencing the soul.
  • A double edged sword symbolizes the ability of truth to cut through the duality of illusion.
  • A circlet represents unity, a sense of being at one with infinity

Below is a close-up of the quilting, fun to do but time consuming.

The background is  leftover over fabric from a recent project. There is a picture in the  most recent scatterdays post.
