I started this quilt a few days ago. If began when I took a vintage linen with some Victorian women embroidered on it and drew with permanent marker the goddess with the circle arms on it.
I made some of my winged wheels and borrowed some of the goddess images from my Language of the Goddess Book.
The original embroidered women seem to be searching to me, for the wild woman within, the goddess beneath the corseted dress and bonnet.
The city fabric is in juxtaposition to the Goddess. But the Goddess transcends time she live among us still.
I literally saw the squares of fabric surrounded by black in my wooden floor boards, before I added them to the quilt. I easily found the squares in my stash then sewed it all together.
The calendar pieces came from a Calendar dish towel from 1974. I sewed some to the goddess drawing then used the rest in the corner with a geometric patterned fabric that seemed to work with the designs that I decorated my goddesses with.
I saw the squares of fabric below the drawing just as I saw the ones above it.
I still have to tack the quilt and plan to finish it on Monday. It will be for sale once I get it all done. It’s 60″ x 70″ and is $400 + shipping.
