Harmony

Hakuna Matata

Three rings interlocked in colour harmony; two dancers moving in unison, one African symbol meaning harmony; two mirror imaged shapes high in the piece adapted from the symbol for ‘Human Rights’. This piece is surely a wish for hope and harmony for everyone throughout the world.

Shadowy Progress

Graded aqua shades of silk dupion are contrasted with hand dyed red-orange or purple circles. These graded disks are then appliqued over navy silk organza “shadows”.

Harmony

This quilt was inspired by the winter iris Harmony in my garden and by the Fibonacci Harmony. The design follows the work of Katie Pasquini Masopust in using repetitions of the basic design in different shades (from dark to light) and sizes (from the Fibonacci sequence 3:5:8).

It was constructed largely by fusing, using commercial and hand-dyed fabrics, and is free machine quilted using a variety of threads. The work is machine pieced and machine quilted.

Harmony

The fabric was dyed with procion dyes and then twin needled in straight lines. The lines were then free machined in wavy lines . The ribbons were then stitched on by hand .

Optimism

I started this quilt after a “Bad Day” – a frustrating morning on the computer followed by some sad family news. So I took out my favourite colours and got started.  Some hours later I felt much more cheerful, i.e. they had generated “Inner Harmony”.

Ebony and Ivory

The theme immediately suggested to me Paul McCartney’s much derided song. How to portray a piano keyboard? Ivory fabric was painted with Markal paintsticks and machine quilted. The black keys were machine embroidered with a broad satin stitch.

Good Music and Fine Wine

A mixed media piece involving gesso, paint, paper, scrim, net and cords worked on an overpainted commercial fabric. The cool colour tones suggest a relaxed mood in which to enjoy the finer things in life.
