African Collections

I have always loved the colours, patterns & textures of African animals, textiles & goods & this series allowed me to play with these design elements. Stitch & surface embellishment helped build the texture I was seeking. An asymmetric finish was also being explored.

The challenge was to work with large pieces of fabric for their inherent beauty & use these qualities sympathetically in a quilt while also being aware of receding & advancing picture planes.
