Helen Hazon – Series#1 – Architecture in My Travels
I have chosen to use my quilt from July 2016 as the starting point for my series. The theme in July was Architecture using a stencil and my quilt was inspired by the Lotus Temple in New Delhi.
Since retiring from teaching 7½ years ago my husband and I have become world travellers, visiting lots of new places each year. We see many wonderful things both natural and man made and take hundreds of photographs wherever we go. The subjects of a high proportion of our photographs are buildings that are characteristic of each country – usually because their architecture is so distinctive. I have decided to follow this theme and base my series on buildings that I have found particularly interesting in the places we have visited.
I intend to base my designs on my own photographs of the buildings and to use fabrics, colours and stitching to reflect my impressions of each different country. The unifying theme will be Architecture in my Travels but I will use a range of techniques, choosing those that best suit each individual subject.
