First summer day

Primo giorno d'estate

I fixed on a quilt with oil sticks a moment sweet from a photo: my grandson and I to the sea on the first day of summer.

Birmingham – “The Festival of Quilts”
“First Day of Summer” has also been accepted as a finalist at the International Competition “Hands All Around 2012” – International Quilt Market & Festival

Technics: painting on fabric with pastelloni oil, freehand machine embroidery, quilted by machine and by hand.
