It has taken me a bit of time to get started with this year’s journal quilts, ( all to be 7” x 9”) but the vernal equinox has spurred me on. My theme this year is “Abstraction”, stimulated by conversation with my drawing teacher. The first three are about birds.
January, Gannets diving into the sea
Hand-dyed and commercial fabric, patchwork with proportions of colour to reflect the different colours in gannets.
February, Robins bob-bobbing along
Applique, commercial and hand-dyed fabric
March, Red kite soaring
Commercial and hand-dyed fabric appliqué with some lipstick highlighting.
