Oh Yes, It Is

39 x 39 inches
Great fun playing with the traditional Log Cabin block construction, colour and tone to develop this design - main influence abstract art, especially Victor Vasarely.
The name came about because whenever I said that it was all straight piecing and quilting, the response was 'Not it is not, it is curved' and my answer was 'Oh yes, it is'. Not a single curve has been used, the illusion of the twist is in the eye of the beholder.

Commercial cotton, some freezer paper foundation piecing.

February Catkins - February Light

72 x 72 inches
Colour and Light on late afternoon walks in February. Catkins moving on crisscross branches with quilting to suggest bare ploughed fields.
Japanese design influence

Freezer paper foundation pieced, machine quilted in five sections, 'quilt as you go' style. All commercial fabrics (I don't do dyeing) - cotton, silk, cotton sateen. There are probably about 100 different fabrics in this piece.
