Bozena Wojtaszek – C


For the letters theme this year I decided to go with illuminated initials for food products. This is a perfect combination of my love for medieval art and food art. And C is for Cauliflower.

Again all of my favourite techniques were in use– applique, beading, embroidery, hand and machine quilting. I also dyed the background fabric for the “old papyrus” effect and painted some extra gold spots just like the medieval monks did.

    Very striking, I love the mix of the elaborate work and the subject matter of the simple cauliflower. Great work!

  2. An interesting continuity to your series. I like the white embroidery on the letter C.

  3. Your three quilts of this year are exquisite. What a great subject you chose and how splendid is your execution. Can’t wait to see the next one in your series.

  4. A lovely third piece of your series! Well done.

    I like the mix of fabrics you have used and the dyed background definitely gives the look of old manuscript. Beautifully done

  6. Your letter C is beautiful embroidered and I love how you got the old papyruseffect of the background. A cauliflower with a medieval letter is such an interesting contrast.

    Again it looks like a page from an old manuscript. Keep doing a good job, I will wait for another page!

  8. Wonderful depiction of C and cauliflower, one of my favourite vegetables, the embroidery on the C is a delight.

  9. Great design again, with beautiful stitching.Love your choice of fabrics and the way you put things together,

  10. What a delightful way to present the humble cauliflower. The colours are great and the stitching is beautiful.

  11. Such a stunning, yet simplistic quilt! The hand-dyed background is perfect, the embroidered details as well. Your food series is shaping up to be quite wonderful.

  12. Your hand dyed fabric is a perfect background for your lovely, delicate embroidery and details. Another lovely addition to your illuminated letters and food series.
