"Eighteenth-century ecclesiastical vestments were the inspiration for this project, although I had to modify the motifs so that they would work on this smallerscale object. I chose to use flowers because they often have religious symbolism. While I tried for authenticity in my choice of materials and stitches, cost and availability dictated certain substitutions, for example, stranded cotton floss instead of silk threads and stranded metallic thread instead of smooth passing thread." -Becky Quine
