I may have mentioned in an earlier post that I got a quilt accepted to the exhibition at Taupo Symposium but couldn't show you until after the event. Well it finished last weekend so here is photo of my quilt.
He is made using scraps of fabrics for the body, glue basted onto a calico base. The background is my own hand dyed fabrics which really came to life when I quilted the stone design. The fabric then looked so much like stone I couldn't believe it. Worked very well, I think. Black tulle was placed over the bird area and quilted to hold it all in place as it is all raw edge. I did not extend the tulle over the background as I didn't like the look of it. Once the piece was all quilted I felt it needed a little something else and added the fine green strips as an inner border, it did seem to lift the design.
