As you will know, I am a big fan of pattern.
Florals in particular.
I like to layer pattern upon pattern.
And accompany it with another pattern.
But these two quilts inspired me in a different way.
They are certainly patterned.
But their solid colours and geometric designs create a purity of form that adding more pattern would spoil.
At my contemporary patchwork class we were set a challenge: produce patchwork from a picture.
Rats, I thought. I don’t know what to do.
I had a week to find a suitable picture to turn into patchwork. I hunted high and low. I thought long and hard.
Finally, I remembered one of my many collections.
I had amassed lots of magazine photos of flowers with the intention of sticking them onto a wall or a piece of furniture.
The folder was fetched out. I rummaged and took along a selection.
I can’t find the original photo. But this was the result.
I would love to do another.
If you have a picture you would like patchworking, or would like me to make something similar for your wall, contact me via my commissions page.
