The Colours of Nature
Colour has always appealed to me, since I was a small child. My quilts reflect this. Inspiration often comes from the colours of nature: flowers, green vegetation, blue skies, sunsets, occasionally even pale mists. Light allows us to see colour.
This piece is infused with the colours I see around me this spring and summer, in my garden and in my neighbourhood. The fabric is a digital print made from my own abstract iPad design. It is whole cloth, no piecing involved. I stitched on the lines to emphasize the shapes of the different colours, and filled some of the larger shapes with more quilting.
24” x 36”, cotton satin fabric, my original design digitally printed by Spoonflower, European branch, using minimal amount of water. Machine quilted with Aurifil threads on a Bernina machine.
