Kaylene Maalste – Photoshoot
Sunset at the Beach
Inspiration: The inspiration for my quilt came from the many times I visit Middleton Beach South Australia to photograph the beach at various times of the day and season.
Middleton Beach is a renowned surf beach and has an interesting coastal formation of rock outcrops and beach. During Summer the sunrise and sunset are spectacular events with photographers.
I chose batik fabrics for my quilt as the variation in the dyeing gave me the patterning I required for sky, sea, and foreshore. I used a gentle curving design and pieced these sections together with a small zigzag stitch. The design of the photographers was from Canstock Photo and I was able to find three clipart “photographers”. I chose a radiating quilting design in keeping with the optics of camera lenses.
