Spinning

I certainly had trouble coming up with the colour.  But it was a fun exercise and I have a few pieces that are a bit smaller than our A4 size that I will quilt up.



This piece is actually smaller that the one above.  It wasn't quite the right colour but it called out to be quilted.

These are some of the pieces of fabric produced by dyeing, dye painting, painting and stamping with textile paints.

  1. You had fun. I really like the quilting you did in the second piece, works well.

  2. A tricky colour for sure, Dianne. Almost an earth tone, like terra cotta, rather than a wine-red, and in fact I think your second piece might be a closer match.

  3. Though I like both pieces, I prefer the second one, but I'm not sure why. Perhaps it is because there is nice feeling of movement in that piece, of blocks being tumbled and blown in the wind.

  4. And I prefer the energy of the first piece. It really speaks to me.

  5. I like the first piece best as it has sparkle and life. I would have liked the top blue slash to have been a little closer to the centre for balance. Love the combination of the printed spirals and the sharp angular slashes.

    In the second piece it might have been fun to have different size blocks dancing around? The quilting is just like blocks tumbling - not rolling.

  6. I prefer your first piece as I agree it had more life it it. The second piece I go with the comments maybe a change in the size of some of the squares .... I also may have thrown in a popper and because of my fetish with even numbers I would have added a 7th.

  7. The first piece is my favourite too: it's so lively, and full of movement.
