Beautiful Tree - Bel Pye Bwa
Trees are especially revered in Haiti, especially since so much deforestation has occurred through the years. This quilt captures the charm of a tiny country house, known as a 'ti kay', nestled beneath a beautiful tree with birds and butterflies flitting through the air while the family goat meanders beneath. Treadle-machine pieced cottons, with hand-appliqué, quilting and embroidery. Sleeve on reverse for hanging. 26x25 inches. By artist Geraldine Louis. Complimentary copy of 'Patience To Raise the Sun' included.
