Diane Botting - More Than Just Hexagons
More Than Just Hexagons design is based on the hexagonal shape itself, which was developed from a doodle done whilst talking on the telephone to a friend. I used the hexagonal shape to create the structure of vertical lines and shapes that is the main design feature of the quilt. The colours evolve from those in the coverlet, mostly pinks and blues. The motifs were created based on some on those found in the coverlet.
Materials and techniques:
Hand dyed and screen printed, de-constructed fabrics and commercial fabrics.
Misty Fuse and iron on Vilene.
