This jacket consists of layers of fabric with a tea party theme. Cups, saucers, tea pots, sweet treats, doilies, etc. overlap with heavy quilting. Pins made from tea bags and spoons are accents.

The Blue Flag in the Bog

I love this Edna St. Vincent Millay poem and wanted to illustrate it in fabric. The burning earth is at the bottom with the blue flag iris; the road to Heaven with the people walking upward, and the poem is printed on silk and sewn at the left side.
