As I was babysitting last night, took some handstitching with me and actually achieved quite a lot. Before I went I managed to needlefelt ( on the embellisher machine) some merino wool fibres onto some calico I had dyed in bright yellow. I backed it with some plain calico. Does that now qualify for a quilt?? Please let me know. I get confused by the "laws" for quilts, so am not sure if I have ever made one?To unify the coulours and the fibres I stitched into it all - like a Kantha - but without the pictures.
This is how much stitching I have done so far, not bad for an evening. I love the way the stitching distorts the fabric , and creates more surface texture. The colours tend to shift in exciting ways too.
The process of the stitching is very theraputic, the repetative sequence of stitching, the only decisions to be made are which direction and which colour. So simple.
