The deadline for Festival of Quilts entries was Friday. I posted my hanging on Wednesday with 48hr delivery so hopefully it has arrived in time.
It is not perfect, not sure it is “me” but in the face of adversity I did get something started, finished and entered.
Question is – will the judges realise its meant to be freeform – wonky edges and fraying threads? Somehow I doubt it. Lets hope the general viewer realises and doesn’t just think its messy.
Not totally happy with it. Maybe I should have left it here at home, too late now.
The details; Natural dyed fabrics (mainly Logwood, Sticklac, Madder) - cotton, silk and silk velvet, Mulberry Silk hand threads, Madeira machine threads.
A not very good picture taken with the quilt on the floor and me standing on a chair with my arms outstretched – I’m only 5ft tall, its not a good combination! I had to do some tweaking in Photoshop to get the edges straight – not totally successful. Lets hope it looks better hanging up.
Its called “Natural selection”. Natural dyed fabrics and showing Darwin’s Finches – they helped him form his theory of evolution and natural selection.
