Bozena Wojtaszek – S
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 S is for strawberry.
Medieval art in general is my constant source of inspiration. Through the years I managed to create quite a lot of art quilts with medieval themes. Now it is a great opportunity to focus on medieval art in the margins of beautiful manuscripts.
Technically I use here all of my favorite techniques – applique, beading, embroidery, hand and machine quilting. I also dyed the background fabric for the “old papirus” effect and painted some extra gold spots just like the medieval monks did.
