The Skythian Tiger

Another mini quilt half-finished: a lino-print -- funny, the hue of printing ink comes out different, the sawtooth edge was done with rubber stamps. The lime material is a basic fabric which will be hidden in the end. Pretty skewed again, just can't help. The motif is an old one, some of my blog readers know it. It was taken from a wood carving in a grave mound in South Siberia, 2500 years old. -- On the upper edge, there are my templates, two of them connected by a scrap, so I keep the matching pair together. The board is my painting board, sorry for the messy look.

Hi, Eva. Love the tiger and its history. So cool to incorporate it into a textile piece and the rubber stamped spikes are pure genius. This is going to be a fun piece!
best, nadia
