ALQS5 - the other quilt

Well, I finally got around to showing the second quilt I received in the ALQS5 swap - this one was made by Peggy, and is a lovely little piece - it's very simple, relying mostly on the textures and colours of the fabrics for its effect, but I like it a lot. It's one of those pieces that is much more effective in person, I think, though you can get a general idea from the photo. I really like the burned edges as well. Very different from the other piece I got, but who wants everything to be the same?

I like it, too. It reminds me of an aged document printed on parchment paper. The horizontal lines of the tiny floral fabric mimic intact script, while the batiks suggest areas darkened by time.
