Maiko

A piece made for the Open European Quilt Championship 2015 in Maastricht.

where it won the "Trophy for Design" and was also 2nd choice in the Public vote.

A photograph of 2 Meiko walking in the street was my inspiration.

The background fabric is stencilled with Markal sticks.

The figures are mainly in silk and cotton, raw edged applique, stitched down,

with hand embroidery accents, no visible binding, machine quilted on a domestic sewing machine.
