Hamsas

hamsa

I’m working on some small quilts with hamsas. A hamsa is a stylized hand for protection, from the Middle East. Hamsa is the number five in Arabic.

I pieced a lot of orange scraps into a piece of “made fabric” then cut out the hamsa from blue fabric, backed with fusible web. I haven’t fused it to the orange yet. It’s very much a work in progress.
