Spirit Quilt is 49" wide x 79" tall, and was created from a wonderfully warped quilt handmade by an artist in Texas. I added nine of my spirit dolls which were fastened to cloth place mats enhanced with assorted scraps of fabric, trims, and feathers. Four fabric birds, dressed up in their Sunday best, decorate the center area, and wood beads and glass amulets from Istanbul which are said to ward off the evil eye weigh down the bottom of the quilt. This is a wonderfully bold and vibrant piece, and needs a good size portion of wall to support it.
