Last week I posted about some beautiful Vicki Welsh hand dyed fabric that I was lucky enough to win. I just love hand dyed fabrics. They've got so much interesting texture and rich colour.
I've started a new series of abstract quilts using a collection of my own hand dyed fabric combined with Vicki's pieces. All of the fabrics have been prepared with Misty Fuse so that I can now create by cutting and collaging in an intuitively spontaneous way.
I just love how all of these fabulous colours compliment each other. And, as you can see, every little bit of fused 'eye candy' has the potential for finding it's way into one of the finished pieces.
Although I can see hand stitch further enhancing these pieces, I plan to start with extensive machine quilting first. Hopefully once the cast comes off I'll be able to get back to hand stitching right away since the collection of works in progress that require hand stitching and/or beading is getting bigger and bigger!
