Napowrimo Replacement Prompt

I used day twelve’s prompt: http://www.napowrimo.net/2014/04/day-twelve-2/

So I took the last section of this page: http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/i/quilting-introduction/ subbed in the world guilt/guilting/guilted for quilting I am not sure where I got this from but remember a literary character calling a quilt a guilt because it wasn’t finished. I then sculpted the text by deleting words and phrases in order. As with all my experimental poetry I ahve followed the process and sound patterns rather than aiming for full sense and here goes:

Uses of Guilted fabric

The earliest guilting was used to make bed covers: very fine guilts are often mentioned in inventories, frequently become family heirlooms. Guilting was also used to produce clothing used for protective wear, padded jackets: worn armour to afford. Guilting in the early years for the guilted worn wealthy.

In many instances guilted items are the work of women  for their own use, hunting . If you look closely you will see that the guilting has been done with chain, worked from the top surface akin to a hook.

The desire to create interesting sculptural effects led to amazing heights of artistry in the hands of skilled wantings. Various stitches create a texture instance laid or are hand tied exactly like pearls, as in pinstuck surfaces
