Well I must learn about scheduled posting so that these posts go out at the right time, still better late than never!

The theme is one I have chosen for my City and Guilds assignment too, so I have been thinking a lot about nature recently. I made a slightly ambiguous mini quilt. It could be the Sun, it could be a flower, or an anenome; such strange flower-like animals.

 

The background fabric was dyed using Procion dyes and the print was made from soft-cut lino. I used slightly thinned acrylic paint for the linocut and used a brush rather than a roller to have better control of the colours.

This close up really shows how much variation there is in the printing.It also shows the variegated thread. I used two; a blue, purple and green one and one of different green hues. Looking at it now a little orange would have been good. Just lately I feel more and more drawn to orange, It was one of my favourite colours as a child and I loved to put it with purple!

The binding is ice-dyed Procion which gives a lovely mottled effect.

Now it’s time for me to see what the other Endeavourers have been creating. If you would like to see for yourself just click HERE

  1. This is such a vibrant design! I think it really captures a living spark of nature. I love the way the white squares move around, giving the blue border an unpredictable shape.
