a LEARNING experience embracing several art quilt techniques.
I know now, that I would never use a piece of WHITE damask again!
Despite the positive and negatives in the fabric pile, the overall effect is too stark Just maybe, I can brush it with a tea stain, and eliminate the glaring white.
(I’ll get back to you on that one!)
And maybe, if I use the brocade again, I need something more than the striped fabric as a counter point fabric.
I am not used to employing muted colours, and this workshop has re- inforced that for me.
I need try new scenarios…. New colourways..
Not stay with “tried and true,”But broaden my horizons, and my experience!
I must say that I have had fun delving into my stash of CQ fabrics rather than staying with traditional patchwork fabrics proving that there can be a melding of both schools of thought/method.
I feel that Traditional and CQ can work together.
The next few days I will try out some metallic threads as embellishment……….whether they will be GOLD (metallic) or coloured?
All I am hoping for, is to introduce such colour and pizzaz!
At this stage, I have no idea what will result. Metallic embroidery (FME or not) is a whole new ball game for me.
Watch this space!
