I like abstract pictures, fotos and quilts with a clear geometric design. In opposite to this strong formal design I like it when such quilts show details like fine quilting and/or embroidery.
For this series I decided for rectangles as the main design element.
When the colour "Green" was announced as theme for this quilt, I remembered that years ago I embroidered a semicircle with beads in green! I always wanted to integrate it in a little abstract quilt. Now its time had come :)).
The green fabrics in the quilt are selfdyed, the stripes of the background are scraps from old bought fabrics.
Only one semicircle in a quilt with straight lines looked odd, so I added two smaller semicircles. These pieces are made from painted bondaweb. I put some fabric scraps and Angelina on it and fused it with organza. When I embroidered it with some beads, sequins and handstitches.
Lines of green sequins connect the green rectangles, beaded semicircles and the background.
This quilt is 60 cm x 42 cm (24'' x 16,5''), the quilting is done by machine.
