|Petroglyph pillow sham|
This is an old pillow sham that I did all sorts of things to and then I added rusted fabric to make the bird-headed person petroglyph.
I was asked by the Anchorage art quilt group, Calendar Girls, to submit a quilt for their yearly challenge and calendar. Their theme: Go Crazy. Theme was chosen last fall long before the world went crazy.
All the fabrics are dyed, painted, stamped, stenciled and/or silk-screened. Most of the embellishments are from garage sales.

Pam researched new words of the 30’s and thought spam would be a fun subject. No one really says what exactly what the acronym stands for but the favored is SPiced hAM.
