Black and White

Some time ago I read one of Karen Eckmeier's articles based on her book "Happy Villages", and I just had to try her description. The wallhanging measures 45 x 40 cm (18 x 16 "), I used a lot of scraps, and in the lower right hand corner is a photo print of my grandmother's hometown sent her for her birthday in the year 1910!! It was lot of fun making this piece, and I already have an idea for a bigger one in my head!
