To create the background using thickened procion dyes and a syringe I let my hands go where they wanted. My mind reflected on the atmosphere of a carnival - thinking of my visit to the Dungog Annual Show with its carnival of animals parading, balloons and fairy floss, loud music, rides for the children, which added to the the merriment of conversing country folk with our locals. It was like a range of flavours before our eyes, ears, and minds.
Hand stitching, tiny felt pieces, and painted fusible webbing, worked together to embellish this quilt.
