Sneak peek at a new quilt

This is a very small part of a new quilt I just have finished:

I experimented with textile paint on this part.
Printing a photograph on Organza and on pre-treated fabric were experiments I used on other parts of this new quilt. Although I can hardly wait to show the whole quilt, patience is required. Photographs of the quilt has been submitted for an international textile competition on the theme of "Tracks" or "Traces".
If the quilt passes the juried competition, it can be seen at the Textile Festival 2010, from March 24 – 28, 2010, in the Pieter's Church in the city of Leiden, the Netherlands.
If not, you can see the quilt on my blog after December 7.
That date is the deadline for sending in the quilt for the second round.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Het detail ziet er mooi uit. Ook ik ben bezig met een quilt voor deze expositie. Zelf doe ik niet met de wedstrijd mee, omdat ik merkte dat de druk van de deadline mij begon te beperken. Ik ben heel benieuwd naar jouw werk. Ik hoop het in het echt te mogen aanschouwen.

  2. Corryna, thank you for your reaction!
    Translation for the foreign visitors:

    "The detail is looking great. I am also making a quilt for this exhibition.
    Because the pressure of the deadline was to restricting, I am not submitting for the competition.
    I am very anxious for your work and hope to see it for real."

  3. This looks so intriguing. Parts of it shines like jewels. Good luck with your submission.
