Unfortunately, my quilting was overtaken by various events in December some of which were not overly pleasant but they are over thank goodness. Now I have a picture to post and hopefully after this afternoon spent in my sewing room there will be another completed item. Another something new for me; a postcard and a new way of creating a picture. Then I still have a small quilt for show to complete. It is past the thought phase, into construction and moving into embellishment. Just quilting and finishing to do.
I have blogged about taking a course with Katie Pasquini Masoput in May of 2016. It was wonderful and I was so happy to see her honoured by the on line show, The Quilt Show. She is a lovely person and probably the best teacher I have learned from; both quilting and life lessons.
Well, here is the finished product. I call it Segmented Tulips. It was from a watercolour painting I did in the class. It has hung on my wall for months with tiny bits done here and there and now it is quilted and bound.
I have to admit my painting had a mid blue background but I had not brought that colour with me to class so I popped out to Suttles and Seawinds to get fabric while others got their lunch. I ended up loving the batik which shows as brown and black but has a blue cast on some parts. I never thought of brown as a warm colour but this one is. I have learned a lot doing this and it gave a sense of freedom because I was not doing straight lines, following someone else's pattern nor was I constrained by anything other my imagination.
I know I will use this non constraining mode of construction again.
