Really it is an old project , a commission piece that I have been working on far to long. The request had no deadline which is not a good thing for me so my deadline for this is Dec 30 of this year 2012. Put it in writing and it is more likely to happen I was told.
I have designed and redesigned and was never happen with the outcome until recently when I tweaked a few lines by removing them. I'm impressed and did the little happy dance when I enlarge the sketch on to the paper for the mock up and pattern placement. It will be the largest art quilt to date for me starting at 50" X 75" and will be cut down some as I stitch and embellish. My original plan was to paint, dye, stitch, but have decided to layer and stitch with batiks and over dyes, some being my own. The painting and dyes may still apply but we shall see as everything is moved around.
First up is to see what materials I have in the cupboard so pulled all what I thought may work and layer them out for values. I may need more. And I do have access to a shop about a hour away that specilizes in Batiks ,The River Gallery , and I am due for a day trip
Did a bit of shopping at Ten Thousand Villages on the weekend and besides olive oil and green tea I bought the cutest gadget.
