ALAMO IN THE 1800'S

ALAMO IN THE 1800

51" W X 33" L

This quilted wallhanging was made for the 2007 Tactile Architecture contest at the International Quilt Festival to be held in Houston, Texas in November 2007. I hand painted the sky with MX dyes. I used commercial and hand painted fabric for the ALAMO. The rocks were hand painted using textile paints. Wool was my choice for batting for this wallhanging. I started this quilted wallhanging in early January 2007 and completed it by the end of February. This is my version of what the ALAMO looked like in the 1800's.
