Els Mommers – Re-arranged
San Pedro De Atacama Church
One of the assignments of my Elisabeth Barton’s online class: ” Inspired to Design” was cutting up some photo copies of a line drawing of a photograph and re-assemble these cuttings to new designs. I have used one of my photographs of the small church in San Pedro de Atacama in Chile. When I had the designs done I realised that I could use one of them for Re-arranged.
The sky is hand painted and the different shapes are fused and raw-edge appliquéd to the background. To keep it’s simplicity and elegance I didn’t add details, just free motion quilted it. The quilt is finished with a facing. I will add some pictures to show how I came to the design.
Material: Hand painted fabric, commercial fabric, cotton and polyesther thread, 80/20 Hobbs batting.
Technique: fabric painting, fusing, raw edge appliqué, free motion quilting.
