I’ve been busy trying to clear the pile of quilts which are sitting in my studio waiting for sleeves and labels and finishing off in general. I finally got started yesterday and finishing one seemed to be the stimulus I needed and now there are four hanging on the walls…
There’s a small problem with the next couple of quilts – I can’t decide which way up they should be!! What do you think?
This one is habutai silk hand dyed and machine quilted quite improvisationally. I added the scrim and appliqued the flower petals as I went along because they felt right. The whole thing is very textural. I started off meaning it to be the top orientation but in lots of ways I quite like the bottom one now. Maybe I should put two sleeves on!!!
The next quilt is one I made with the kids – we glued on lots of small scraps of fabrics and I stitched them down and then quilted it, again quite spontaneously. Again, I started off thinking it would be the top orientation but now am not sure…
Any thoughts gratefully received!
