This incredible piece of art is finely crafted by hand with an assortment of fabrics, beads and baubles. An amazing crazy-quilt of velvets, cotton and trim makes a perfect focal point of our living room. I was going to place it above the mantel but decided that I wanted it where the detail would show more closely because the workmanship is excellent. It is sure to become a family heirloom, as every story begins at home. And yes, we feel the dreams of the women who once wore the garments from which this art is created.
