A Pieced Length of Cotton: Patterns
mid twentieth century
64" x 13 1/4", 162.5 cm x 33.5 cm
This is a beautifully composed column of cotton cloth pieces, seven in all, which have been hand stitched together.
One pattern is represented, however the pattern is represented in various tints and hues.
The cotton is of a commercial variety although the stenciled patterns may be in part hand done; the stitching and the mending--shown in detail photographs here--are all by hand.
The commercial grade cotton is lightweight and the overall appeal of this alternating light and dark length is sedate and appealing.
