Mola type applique sampleThis is a sample of mola quilting which I did using the design motif developed in the last photo. In the City and Guilds course we had to do samples of all sorts of patchwork and quilting techniques.

An interesting shape

colourful shapes

These are some of the designs I made from that individual motif. I made a stamp and stamped some of them, and I scanned one of the stamped designs into the computer and played with it.

Fireplace designs

fireplace designs

These designs are all based on one of the fireplaces in the house. I did a rubbing of the indented design around the edge of it and made a stencil of it and then played with that. I embossed the one at the bottom. I then took one of the individual designs and simplified it.

Embroidery using nappy liners!

original design using nappy liners!

This one isn’t very clear, but I scanned the print into my computer and digitized it using Customizer 2000 and scanned it on to a memory card for my machine. I then distressed it by ironing a painted nappy liner over it. (I was obviously playing a lot with nappy liners and my new sewing machine at this time… haven’t done much with either since – at least with the computerized part of the latter).
