Greetje Hein – Motion “Keep running”
When this topic came up I had plenty of ideas. There are so many things in motion or moving. People are also always in motion.
I decided to make a quilt with running people, because I am running for a year now. When you run you move forward and you can go for a longer distance each time.
This quilt also symbolizes you must not stay in the same circle, but go on and explore yourself.
I ice dyed a piece of cotton fabric in a spiral. The spiral means you come out of your own circle.
Using a template and opaque fabric paint I stenciled the road and quilted this free motion with variegated thread.
I draw the people with a permanent marker.
