Bozena Wojtaszek – M


Inspiration: 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 my M went seasonal – it is for mushrooms.

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.

Detail views:


  1. I love your choice of truly autumnal colours for this piece and the finesse of your details. Lovely…

  2. I agree with Caro, like the curves and choice of fabric for your letter M.

  3. Nice piece in harmony with your series. I like the touch of humour with the small mushroom hiding behind the big letter M !

  4. Another lovely addition of your Illuminated letter series highlighting your beautiful, delicate handwork, but with a whimsical touch. Charming!

  5. Another great addition to you illuminated letter series. The lovely colouring is so in sync with the autumnal feel. Beautiful.

  6. A happy feel to this piece and a nice way to continue your series. Your colour palette is perfect for the subject and the stitching gives life to the piece. Lovely

  7. I love your subdued colours with the touch of gold. Your combined hand- and machine quilting
    is very playful,in this piece.
