I pieced lots of fabrics together fairly simply. I either painted or stamped or rubbed or foiled nearly all of these fabrics during my time there and they are coming together beautifully.
I now want to overlay a design somehow and the image I have developed is based on this metal grill over a doorway.
I wanted it circular so have repeated it and then drawn a line drawing from it.
Now to get it onto the quilt. I have had a few ideas including discharge and line quilting and overlay. Each has been explored and tested so still not sure what the end result will be.
But I am really enjoying the journey.
And if you are inspired - I am returning to Orvieto next year - September 2012 and would love to have you join me. More information here.
