Detail of embroidered church

Detail of embroidered church

'St.Olaves' 1880's  a church that still remains in the heart of London. I made this quilted wall hanging after having cancer in 1994, it is completely hand appliqued hand embroidered and hand quilted. It was made from an etching I found, and with scrap bag bits of fabric. I think of this wallhanging as a reminder and a way of getting well again and recovering from an awful illness.
