Kaylene Maalste – Texture
When this challenge was announced, I was in the process of designing and creating a quilt for the Festival of Threads, and was experimenting with cording and mock pin tucking. I like this technique so I incorporated this in my quilt. The material is a hand dyed in the Arashi style using black Procion MX dye on linen. The patterning on the material dictated the flow of lines and free motion quilting. I then added further texture with embroidery and small rolls and balls of fabric. The only problem I encountered was the orientation of the quilt, due to a dark segment in the quilt.
