Elevations

This started with a pieced of beautiful textured silk that I ice dyed and then stitched with multiple colours of thread, including our "turquoise".

  1. Just when you think you have people pigeon-holed they send all your preconceptions out the window. Very abstract, Helena. Makes me think of an aerial photograph. Beautiful piece of fabric - brave you for ice-dyeing it!

  2. What a gift to work with. Love the colours and I agree with Hilary it has the look of an aerial shot.

  3. Fascinating texture, and very successful ice dyeing. A lovely piece I fell like I want to hold and caress.

  4. A contour map, yes, but I can also see that the quilting suggests a floral theme, no? Love the way you use salvaged table linens, etc., for some of your backgrounds.

  5. It almost belongs in Chris Hadfield's new book: You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes.
    You really are good with how you intuitively quilt and this is another great example.

  10. I've never seen this intensity of colour from ice dyeing before, love the colour contrasts.
