Kaylene Maalste – Monochromatic – Time Travel
Initially I had thought that this challenge would be easy, blue is my favourite colour, so I dyed fabric in one shade of blue with different hues and then set about with my design, but it did not work I did not have the contrast I needed. So what to do when I am having a mental block I turn to my books for inspiration and saw a quilt that attracted me by Fenella Davies title “Sunform in Magenta”, not wanting to “copy” I thought about ways to make this mine. One of our previous challenges was “Time” and I designed “Time Warp”, this time I decided on “Time Travel” as my theme and would use the same Japanese fabric, so my colour palette is black and off white. The quilt is raw appliquéd and machine quilted.
