I'm now well and truly immersed in creating my new work for the Festival of Quilts. I still have a number of variations mulling around and I'm trying some out to see how they work.
These samples were made using scraps of fabric, fabric paint, stitch, paintsticks and stencils, layering and quilting. As well as playing with the designs, I'm also trying out different variations of quilt sandwich to see how they work. These used fusible wadding for the first time and it did hold it together well, but I'm not convinced it would work on my final pieces as this wadding splits a bit and this won't work if I'm not binding the edges.
The stencil took ages to cut and is based on a wave pattern (more about this in my next post or two).
