Oh, the challenges of photographing a quilt that has been framed under glass 🙄. As explained in a post last December, I was inspired by a piece of green batik to create a map of our home and favorite motorcycle routes-using silk ribbon to represent the classic GPS map yellow roadways and blue bodies of water. As I decide which background to use for my (UNframed) class sample, I’m having fun imagining what kind of locations my students will want to use.
Heavily forested like my home state of Connecticut?
A desert vacation spot, with some canyons stitched in?
Perhaps a grid-like urban area…these fantastic fabrics by Weeks Ringle would be fun…
My choice for the next piece? A beloved spot in the Caribbean.(After all, we can show flight routes as well as roads!)
Time to MistyFuse to batting and backing, applique a few islands and stitch lots of water 🌴🐠 …Happy weekend to all :)!
