The second thing I have been working on is this-
|The beginning of this piece- almost. I painted the reemay with Setacolor paint . I then ironed Wonder Under onto the back side before I began cutting. Once the Wonder Under was cool, I began cutting with my soldering iron. NOT as easy as it looks!|
|Apart from some more roundish holes around the outside, through the blue and green, this is the main piece all cut and ready to fuse to the background layer. It will be hand dyed . Stay tuned!|
I plan to dye a background for this , layer and quilt it and decide what to call it. It makes me think of a composite flower like Coreopsis or a sunburst but I shall await the outcome to decide on a title. I told you before I am the Queen of Serendipity!
One more shot on a background of plain white Dupioni silk.I MAY try dyeing it but it is not so easy and looks grainy, OR I may just go with some nice white cotton lawn to dye. It will take the colour the way I want it to. Watch this space!
