Woodstock Revisited

These are a couple of pictures of one of my latest quilts, the name of this quilt is Woodstock Revisited. The top of the quilt is a tie-dyed bedsheet. I purchased this sheet last May at a street festival in Tulsa,OKlahoma called Mayfest. There is a company called Crazy Hat that I purchased this sheet from. The minute I saw this sheet I could see it quilted, embroidered, and embellished. This Quilt has almost 100 embroidered peace signs and flowers, there are 1850 crystals, and 975 Holograms embellishing this quilt. On the back of the quilt I have added the names of about 20 of the artists that performed at Woodstock. This year is the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. This quilt was alot of fun to make. The tie-dye is the prettiest I have ever seen, the colors are very vibrant.
