Kaylene Maalste – M
M for Mushrooms
Inspiration – For the last two quilts for 2020 I decided to turn to nature for inspiration, at the time I was cooking with mushrooms so I thought why not. I was also inspired by a technique I saw in a book in the library where the outlines of motives where hand stitched.
Method. The letter M and mushrooms where outlined on the fabric. The mushrooms where then outlined with a larger mushroom shape. Then I proceeded to hand stitch with stab stitch around around the larger mushroom shape in one colour. The colours in-between the mushroom was random. The quilt was then bound with a grey fabric.
