Bedspread, Gill King

Gill King

133" x 123"

Our Gill King Bedspread was inspired by the English artist Madge Gill. Gill worked in bed on long rolls of paper guided she said by spirits. Inspired by her process we sewed the left over bits and pieces of fabric together into long rolls as raw material for pillows and throws. This bedspread is composed from those rolls of piecework textiles. Vintage and contemporary linens with highlights of vintage African textiles, Hmong hemp, vintage Kalamkari cotton and Miao Dowry textiles. Fully lined in a lightweight wool crepe--see second photo.
