It started as woven strips. Then I designed the overlay to expose as much of the "weaving" as I could. NOW it's finished! I added red zigzag around all of the green edges, some red paint, and quilted with yellow thread. I finished the facing this week. It's title is "Now and Venn".
The weaving began as an exercise at our "Artrageous Quilters" meeting. We were challenged to make something and bring it to the next meeting.
At that next meeting, we made leaf prints, using real leaves and acrylic INK (not paint, not dye).
I printed one fat quarter of muslin that day. It has been sitting around ever since, waiting for inspiration.
Last night, I decided to try out another pattern from Cultural Fusion Quilts by Sujata Shaw. (I am a huge fan.) I found a batik to pair with it, that had similar colors and a leafy design! I cut and sewed, cut and sewed.
The fat quarter was only enough to make two blocks like this. I need to press each section, trim and sew. Fun to do, I will explore this pattern again. Wonder how long it will take me to get things ready for the next showing here?
