Our Blessed Mother and The Christ Child

I have these wonderful holy card images and I finally found some time to create a collaged art quilt.
The background was done with scrap papers, pieces from some of my etchings, scrap linen and canvas.
 My mother taught me how to sew at a young age and so I use to make a lot of my clothes. However, since having kids, most of my sewing is done with collages or mending things. I have an old Kenmore Sewing Machine that is made out of metal and I have had that for years. It is heavy to tote around. Now a days the sewing machines are made of plastic and light weight.

Ah, but the old sewing machines are so much more durable and dependable... this piece is really beautiful and the image is wonderful!
