“lines & waves” quilt

a finished small quilt. i wanted to try a few things while working on a slightly larger quilted piece to see how a bigger pieces behaves. i needed to change my quilting technique a bit compared to the tiny quilts, and also when sandwiching the layers together, getting everything flat and even is a bigger challenge. but overall i was surprised how the quilting itself didn’t take as long as i had imagined. only working on apiece this size on my lap while it’s over 30 degrees celsius maybe wasn’t the best idea ever. 😀

materials used are vintage cotton bed linens for top, backing and binding. the batting is cotton and the whole piece is hand stitched with vintage embroidery thread hand dyed with madder.

measurements are 100cm x 110cm.

abstract embroidery – untitled

another abstract piece, designed as wall hanging, that emerged from working on my first piece, topography. march 2021.

plant dyed vintage cotton embroidery thread (tagetes, onion skin, tagetes/onionskn mix, sequoia cones, pine cone mix) on antique, hand woven linen from austria.

mount hand turned by @orcoyoyo from willow wood (salix); string hand twined from leftover thread i used during the dyeing process to secure the skeins of thread in the dyepot.
