Here's the 3rd in my series: Flags of Imaginary Countries. This is "Votka", 13" by 15", free-motion quilted with silk thread. I see Votka as a land of islands and fjords, snow capped mountains and saunas. Cold, but clean and clear; inhabited by a tribe of nomadic quilters who herd roaming cotton-tails (a wild deranged rabbit that sheds its tail every 3 months). The tribes pick up the cotton-tails as they are shed and use them for their delightful quilted arts. These quilters are small, and shy and if you see them by the light of the full-moon they will lead you to a fabric stash of legend!
