Quilten speciaal quilt
These are pictures of the final assessment quilt for the Quilten Speciaal Course. The picture at the right is a detail of the quilt. The quilting of the ammonite is finished. It is looking better than without the quilting, but I am still not very happy with it. I have been trying to find a word which describes it the best, and I think that boring comes close to it. The idea was to work with structure(s) and that I think is accomplished. The green/blue holes in the ammonite are made from sheers which have been heatgunned (is that a verb?). Quilting on the ammonite has been done with a blueish thread.
Next session of the course is on February 8. I will finish this quilt before that day anyway and take it with me but I will also bring another one. For that I have dyed the fabric with a mixture of two blacks and rollerpainted pewter lumiere over it. Will heatset it tomorrow and work on it the coming days.
