Here is info from Pam about this piece, as listed on the card next to it: "The Bayeux Tapestry has been my passion for the past 5 years. I am in the process of creating the entire tapestry as a quilt. It is 238 feet long. This piece is my sample to work out the technicalities of making a quilt from a tapestry. I have illustrated with pigment ink to create dimension in the quilt. Techniques: Satin stitch appliqué, free motion quilting. Materials: Cotton fabric, batting, backing. Design source: Illustrations by Pam Holland from the Bayeux Tapestry, 1066."

  4. Beaten to an idea again! I was recently thinking about trying a piece of the bayeux tapesty as a quilt. You wouldn't happen to have some larger images of it would you?
    I'm in Australia. Thankyou for sharing these. Our local show allows photos with a strict rule of not posting them online. I thoroughly appreciate you being able to share these images. We need more free exchanges of ideas and art. If you have a closeup you can email me metanoia [at] costumewardrobe.com

  5. Metanoia,
    I only took those two photos. But here is the info on the card next to the quilt (info written by Pam Holland). She is in Aldgate, South Australia, so perhaps you can see it in person someday! "The Bayeux Tapestry has been my passion for the past 5 years. I am in the process of creating the entire tapestry as a quilt. It is 238 feet long.

  6. Thanks Susan! She is actually very near me, I'll see if I can track her down further. I am so surprised I haven't seen this in the local quilt fair!
