This is the second of the projects originating from the "Bayeux Tapestry to Quilt" project.
I've used white linen for this project and I dyed the three layers with the safety pins in it to achiever the color and effect I have now.
The images of the faces are taken directly from the tapestry… there are over 600 people in the Tapestry and each person has a different face. You know you often see a portrait class, and every sample looks the same. I just love these guys, and guys they are because there are only 3 women depicted in the whole piece.
Their faces and hands have so much character.
On the quilt, I am depicting the Norman soldier pointing to the British. They look at him with disdain and some even turn their backs on him.
