Most of my quilts are designed and made in square or portrait rectangle shapes. Table runners are more of landscape rectangle shape but I don’t really make them with landscape in my mind.
And I wanted make one wall hanging in landscape shape. Well I wanted to something different for me anyway.
What can I make without actually making landscape design. I had some images of Byobu panels/dividers as inspiration.
I sliced up a lot of light coloured fabrics to create vertical lines. They are between 1/2″ and 1 1/2″ finished and 18″ high(I ended up a quite lot of left over and might use for something else).
I fuse-appliquéd willow leaves in various colours and added border and quilted. Sounds simple, isn’t it.
And I quilted doodle style without any particular plan.
Except the border. I wanted some sort of style there with quilting.
And the whole look is like this. Looking through low and wide window? Maybe background is a bamboo forest.
It’s 28″ high and 51″ wide.
I am bringing this quilt along with others to the exhibition with FORM in Dublin starting next Thursday, 10th. Hope it finds nice place to be displayed.
