Greetje Hein – S
Inspiration: I love fields of flowers. That’s why I want to do my letter series with all kind of flowers.
I would like to make a series with flowers. My challenge for this series is also to use a lot of materials I bought “just because I might need it”.
I dyed a piece of cotton fabric and some lace with ice-cubes. This blue-green fabric I want to use as the background for all the quilts. All quilts will have a strip of velours de panne. On this strip you will see the name of the flower. All the quilts will show a bigger flower. The letter suggests the flowerfield.
The first flower with “S” I had in mind is a sunflower. The heart of the flower is a cotton batik, free motion quilted with shrink foil. I added the highlights with gold and copper wax. Ages ago I made a bobbin-lace sunflower. I took it apart and used the flower leaves.
