Wild about quilting







 When the theme "wild" came up my first thought was that now I will go wild with quilting. My last pieces "Roots" and "Spaced Bottles" were not quilted as much as they probably should have been, so this time I wanted to focus on dense quilting. As that was my focus I thought that an abstract design would be a great choice for this activity. I like curvy lines so I made some value sketches with lots of swiping curvy lines to resemble some kind of pods.  Even if I have not got wild with colors, there are a great range of values of pink and grey. Fabric used are cottons and the piece is fused. The piece has  a narrow binding.

  1. Ann-Mari, your dense quilting is perfect for the shapes in this piece. The different colours and values work very well together to make an interesting design over the whole piece.

  6. Glorious abstract design. It is complete in itself. Everything works together and enhances the piece. Have you thought of making a series of this one. I think this is my favourite of all your work
