I made a little batik(laran) painting in the Miao-workshop of last year and now it became a quilt of 50*50cm, as required for the national exhibition in october at Edingen.
This was the beginning :
Then I took leftovers of jeans, in different tones, some reverse to obtain another hue and I stitched borders around. No design, just feeling and going on piece by piece. An upper border in 'chevron'style, a little crazy element and an uncomplicated border, a few white ric-rac-braids between and it became like this :
.... but I found that it was so nude, so sober, even after quilting with a sparkling metallic thread, so I started with my other passion : crochet and cro-tat and I played with my collection of blue threads of different sizes and embellished my little quilt a little.
And now it is okay for me, I like it !
You want to see it in real ??
Visit the exhibition in Edingen from 15 till 18 october ! You'll see a lot of 50*50cm quilts from members of our national guild, as well as a lot of other quilts.
I'm finishing the one I'll show for the category of 'my favourite quilt'. As soon as it is ready, you'll see it here first!
