|In February 2000 I falled in love in a book :|
|URVES in MOTION from
Judy DALES, book that I bought...
A week later I was working on a quilt with that book!
|At first I drawed some quilts on EQ4, just to see "how it is" and also to get a right feeling to curves, as they were very new to me.|
|Then I decided to work on Corel Draw because I
too appreciate that computer programm and it made me able to put some
more information on the templates & drawing.
|I followed the instructions of Judy Dales,
most of them were very familar to me because I worked on a very similar
way for the quilt :
"Fenêtres d´Avenirs" with the help of the book :QUILTED LANDSCAPES from Joan Blalock.
|Anyway with the print of the templates I decided to do 2 new things -new to me!- a) I print on cardboard so that my templates could resist better during the work, b) I taped some pages to each other to get an "artificial" banner. 2 little things that made me the life easier later on.|
|My batiks were sorted and hop hop I started the
quilt. It was sewed within 10-12 days, the hand-quilting took a long,
long time, and also to add the binding. Here under you can see some more
