Theme for Latitude Quilts group.

June 14, 2013

Latitude Quilts third theme for this year was “Leave Your Mark”.

So my piece “The X Factor” was created using cotton fabric dyed with thickened Procion dyes, silk fabric dyed with Landscape Dyes, and machine stitched.

Hand dyed threads stitched up more texture and created lines to emphasise the X shape that I am so drawn to.

More experimentation in my wet-room has produced these gorgeous scarves.

Ideas are percolating for future work with Landscape dyes and silk.
