Kate Dowty - In The Frame
I found it hard to relate to the quilt offered as a source of inspiration. I disliked the design and the colours and I loathe text on quilts! This proved to be a real challenge for me and I prevaricated for very long time. Finally I chose to work with the frames which are placed askew on the original piece. The text inside the frames on the original uses cross stitch so some of my frames contain my version of cross stitch. I found that the specified proportions made finding a pleasing layout difficult.
Materials and techniques:
Magie Relph African fabric as background.
Own painted and printed fabric.
