January is quickly coming to an end and for the last few weeks I have been having problems uploading photos from my camera for my blog entry. I tried to sort out the problem myself but in the end had to ask Dave. Of course the entry which I had started is no longer appropriate but I am glad that Christmas is over. I hope 2013 is better than 2012 was.
Next week if I get enough students enrolling I will be teaching a five week introduction to Batik
class at Swavesy Village College. The classes are aimed at adults who have not done Batik before. We will work on Paper and fabric to create original designs. It should be fun.
I had shown the initial design for this wholecloth painted quilt a few blogs ago and would like to share the final results. I had wanted to retain the painterly quality of the design showing the sweeping movement of the brushstrokes in the background.
The initial painting on fabric.
Machine embroidery onto painted background, stitching added
Stitching complete and binding put on.
