Greetje Hein – Seasons – Brighten up my day
Many seasons came through my mind: spring, summer, autumn, winter, but also holiday season, ice-cream season, rain season.
In Holland we have a lot of rain during every season. In autumn we have those grey days with no sunshine, only clouds and rain. On such days you often see umbrellas, sometimes in bright and shiny colours with almost invisible people. Those umbrellas make me smile.
The background of my quilt is string-pieced with variegated fabric. I made it with diagonal strips to suggest the rain. The people are made with grey organza. For the umbrellas I used bright and shiny fabric and put extra batting under each umbrella. I embellished the quilt with raindrops.
