This collection of teabags was just calling out for a cup of tea. Armed with matte medium and some more snow-dyed fabric I tried my hand at a third quilt with teabags as a surface design element. I love using text and really good quotes to add to the images and I am having a lot of fun just picking out little embellishments from all over the place. This quilt uses teabag tags, beads, sequins, a key, a piece of copper that I heated, bent and hammered, a candy wrapper, old book page and some Shiva paintsticks stenciled through punchinella. I already know who will be receiving this one as a gift.
I just love the caption on the teabag label.
Some vintage mother-of-pearl buttons add to the aged look of the piece.
I have two more teabag surface design quilts on the work table. Stay tuned for where I take them.
