Finish It Up Friday ~ Kintsugi

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending pottery and using gold to fill in the cracks. It means that each time a pot is broken and repaired, it becomes more beautiful. That is what I was thinking about as I made this piece. It is 19 inches wide and 29 inches long.

I quilted random vertical lines with a 60 weight thread.

All of the fabrics were hand dyed by me.

Once again, I used a facing rather than than a binding.

This will be my second entry for the local art show. Wish me luck!

Have a great day!

    That’s a really great piece – but I’m thankful that it was you piecing all those narrow seams and not me! I love the different shades of fabric that you used – I’m sure that it will do well in the show!

    Your Kintsugi quilt is beautiful, gorgeous hand dyed fabric, and I love the effect of the facing, especially for a wall quilt.
