Designing a quilt for a specific project brings forth a lot of challenges.
"Hunger" was this challenge.
It's not beautiful, its supposed to be provocative and the images are from my own experiences of people on the streets in Thailand, India and Mexico.
The Artist statement will give a detailed description of the quilt.
It was difficult to add this small quilt into the larger one, but realistically it would be too hard to thread-paint onto the larger quilt and so I did as a separate piece and appliquéd it on.
The other images are illustrated right on the quilt top and the quilting flows across the genres.
The next genre was "The South west" totally different and whimsical.
This is a teaching sample, so I have to add illustrations and instructions.
Then on to Donkey Diva,
Mark 1 and 2
Four quilts in 3 weeks. Gees Louise.
The brain and body have been on overload but now I can wind down. Hopefully I can smell the roses and relax.
I leave for Singapore on Tuesday, Thursday I will be in London and Saturday on a cruise to Norway Teaching.
