Kaylene Maalste – Roads – On Way to Burra
My quilt was inspired by a trip taken during September that took us through some beautiful farming areas, some paddocks were in full bloom with canola, others were bright purple from a weed known as “Salvation Jane” (Echium plantagineum), then there was the wheat paddocks and some that had been ploughed. The style of my quilt was influenced by Ton Schulten. I used hand dyed and commercial cottons and relied on hand embroidery to accent the paddocks.
