For the Quilten Speciaal course I took here in the Netherlands, I had to make a final assessment quilt. In my case I should work with lines and structure. The picture shows the result. It is a wholecloth quilt. I handdyed the fabric and than stamped on it using Lumiere paint. The white and the black rectangulars at the left are made from lutrador on which I used my heatgun. For the quilting I used my favourite design which comes from Dijanne Cevaal's book. When everything was quilted I wanted to adjust the columns in such a way that they stood out more so I decided to add paint to them. For two of them I used copper Lumiere for the other ones black Setacolor transparant. And to complete it, I attached lots of different shaped white buttons on it. Chosing a title was the most difficult part. Friends mentioned words like ruins, Indiana Jones and tracks. This helped a lot. Out of this came the title: 'Montezuma's Mystery Trails'.
