I commented in a previous post that the addition of gold paint dots is very permanent, so once I start, there is no way to stop. I’m still mulling this over.
On the left of this pic is the first finished quilt in this series. There was a lot of positive response to the possibility of doing dots when I first posted on FB, asking my friends whether or not to continue the dots….and so I went ahead, with a great result. However, the one beside it., right, with the red ochre binding, is a lot larger, and a totally different design. It’s also much more recent. (I don’t think it gives too much away – for non-art quilters, there’s this ‘thing’ about previously ‘published’ works being entered in certain art quilt calls for entry)
This most recent in the series shows a portion, above, in very close detail. I have heaps of this gold thread on hand, exactly matching the gold pinspot/black.. As I work, there’s lots of stopping and restarting, with approximately 50% of thread wastage; but as I toss those offcuts to the floor around the waste basket, I don’t mind one bit knowing I have plenty on hand 🙂
