Textile Art has always been Roswitha’s passion. This wall hanging is her latest creation and will make a bold addition to the decor of your home. Roswitha’s inspiration comes from the colours that are all around us every day. All Roswitha’s wall hangings are designed and made by her. After carefully choosing the fabrics and cutting each piece out individually, she lays them all out together, rearranging them many times before they find their final positions in the quilt. She then stitches them carefully together. Once they are all sewn she overstitches it, sometimes adding ribbons and other details. This holds together the fine calico backing and pure cotton fill.
In Roswitha’s words – “My scrap bucket is overflowing so a ‘Happy-Scrappy’ something got under-way. But first I needed two lines to hold it together. However, somehow it developed a life of its own giving me the question what next? Then my daughter/colleague suggested it needed a ‘whoosh’ so four black lines later and at last it seemed to look like what I was trying to say.”
Hang it in the hallway or lounge room and let it start a conversation with visitors. Like a painting, a whole new depth of colour and movement comes to light when you stand back. it will make a focal point that both you and your visitors will be drawn to every time you pass by, and just for a moment you will be taken in to another world.
It has a rich indigo border and a matching cord for hanging, neatly attached to a length of wood
