Turkey Red

I recently visited the wonderful American Museum in Bath I was much taken with the quilt room and particularly the red embroidered quilt in their collection. I came back and drew this fox in red stitching relating it to my local quilt tradition by using a piece of north country turkey red strippy and the flowers were unpicked from a north country eiderdown. The horse is a detail from the quilt in the American Museum www.
