Earlier this week I had a studio visit from local textile artist Lilian Madfes, and while she was here I gave her a demo/lesson in the basics of freehand patchwork piecing Next week I will go to her studio for her demo of the basics of silk painting, at which she is a master in a very creative way. When I had given her plenty to use to explore the technique if she wishes to, I talked about the dome-like shapes I often use in my designs and showed her how I do one. Sewing it up therefore made it a sample – and my readers know I’m keen on samples for trying out any new ideas and materials!
That first one is on the RH end of this pic. I liked it, so made more, and love where this is apparently going.
