Evolution






This all happened in a Master Class at Quilt Surface Design Symposium. Rosalie Dace from South Africa was the teacher. There were only 8 students so we really got to know each other, the creative process was certainly free flowing and the freedom to work without worrying about the lawn, garden, meals or cleanup was wonderful. I have two strong pieces to work on in the next month.

Stage one the photo













Stage two the background









Stage three more background.
I originally thought I would do the words Draw! Shoot! Bang! as moveable parts that I would attach as embroidered pillows that could be added and subtracted but I thought it might be gimmicky. There was a lot of changes and additions of jeans, patches, old quilt parts, etc.
Here is the top on my design board at home. Everything is ready to be quilted which I can't wait to start! The words will be ironed down I have them backed with fusible web. Let the stitching commence!

Next time I will show a very different piece that I can't wait to work on.

  1. You have done a good work. i am a textile designer and I know that to make a textile design need good knowldge. Value or quality in textiles depends on several factors, such as the quality of the raw material used and the character of the yarn spun from the fibers.
