Latitude Quilts – First theme .. Carnival

Carnival flavours is the name given to my first entry with Latitude Art-quilts.  It measures 15 inches square.

I wanted my quilt to capture the flavour or essence of a carnival.    Reflecting on my attendance at Dungog’s annual show a few months ago, I applied with thickened procion dyes on cotton fabric to let fly with imagery that emerged in my mind.

Music, activity, competition, colour, balloons, masks people wear, all seemed to emerge into a series of shapes on fabric.

Unusual for me, this quilt features a majority of hand stitching – mostly white to subdue the white background so the features stood out – well that was my intention, did it work?

I welcome your comments.
