I started with a top I had made about 5/6 yrs ago in a class. I just never knew what to do with it, knew it needed something and I always thought in terms of applique. Just never got to it.
So I cut it up... I am afraid I did use a ruler. Then I just got started with 'things' that I have been fiddling with, like stencilled leaves [shiva sticks] and it went from there. I tried painting ... again with Shiva Sticks, but I didn't like the results, so cut it out and used that african animal fabric to cover the holes..from the back.
It is quilted, painted, appliqued and bound... held together by tabs.
Cynthia, if you see this, you may recognize my inspiration source...
the Dreaming in Color quilt by Linda Kemshall and just 10 pages before your Focus on Fungi.
I always look at your piece but somehow... nothing happens.......
I just love it and someday.....maybe the pieces will fall together.
BTW the book I am referring to is Quilting Masterclass....Inspirations and techniques from the experts........ by Katharine Guerrier.
So, I found it a challenge. fun and while I am surprised by the 'sameness as I put the pieces back together [it was not my intent], I do like the end result.
My Townhouse with a Country View.
Thank you Linda.....
