A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

November already!

This is another paper laminated piece, part of a commission for two wall hangings for a friend. I have machine quilted quite heavily between the laminated areas, and machine stitched quite heavily in copper thread over the flower shape towards the bottom left. It doesn't show too well in this photograph.

 Hopefully, this is now finished! I have played around with it so much, and even now I don't think I'm 100% happy with it, but there comes a point when you have to accept that enough is enough.....so that's it for this piece!

My November Journal Quilt was initially inspired by a small fragment of hand, tie dyed  fabric. I collected together a few more scraps of hand dyed fabric, plus some colour matched scraps, and hand stitched them together in what I considered a pleasing arrangement. The tie dyed piece reminded me of a sun, but being blue it seemed more appropriate to call it 'Blue Moon'. I also felt compelled to stitch a face on the moon shape, so here it is. November is actually a 'blue moon month, there are two different criteria for a blue moon, this is the older of the two according to 'google'.
