Green Britain No 19
This small wall hanging is my folk art version of the Union Jack flag, made from a patchwork of various cotton fabrics (one or two may be cotton mix). Some of the fabrics are reused/recycled.
This textile piece is my aspiration for the UK. We've got a long way to go! The colour green now has a double meaning, and the fact that it includes reused fabrics and handwork expresses my own personal philosophy.
The wall hanging was machine pieced, layered with wadding and a backing piece, and hand quilted. A binding strip was added, together with a small card with the title, year and my details on the reverse.
The piece is tea dyed and washed to give an 'aged' and wrinkled appearance to the surface.
The wall hanging measures approximately 16 1/8 inches (41 cm) wide x 9 7/8 inches (25 cm) high. It has a sleeve on the reverse with a removable wooden dowel, which can be simply suspended from two small hooks or nails. (The wall hanging could also be framed, or hung from a thin rope/cord.)
Please note that actual colours may vary slightly from the photo, but should be fairly close. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
I made my first green patchwork union jack back in 2008 when I wanted to express my wish that the UK was a 'greener' country.
