Greetje Hein – Series #2 – Abstract
It was not easy to get the design for my abstract tulips.
I selected some commercial fabrics in white/silver to refer to the black and white.
The background technique is strip-piecing.
I simplified the shape of the tulip to a kind of triangle.
I cut pink batik fabrics in very small pieces, covered it with pink voile and quilted this free motion to create a new fabric. This new fabric I cut in triangle shapes.
This shape is also used for green tulle parts behind the tulips.
The leaves are also simplified to triangles and are fused on the background.
The stems are made with zigzag ribbon.
I quilted straight lines in the directions of the tulip-shape.
Keywords: abstract, abstract tulips, strip-piecing, triangle, tulle, zigzag ribbon
