This stunning hand-appliqued and hand quilted masterpiece from Zena Thorpe took a year and a half to complete. Not an unusual amount of time for Zena who averaged 3-4 hours a day on the work. Crowned with Glory - Right Royally came about when she visited Parliament and was inspired by wall hangings from the Royal School of Needlework. Other inspirations included red carpets with crown designs, leather upholstery in the House of Lords, and a church-supply catalog with ecclesiastical motfis. It was completed in 1996 and is 82" x 90" materials include cotton damask, tricot-backed lame, and metallic thread.
