Helen Hazon- Ripples
Texture in this piece is provided by the fabric and the stitching. I tray-dyed a large piece of fabric and selected this section for its patterns and colour combinations. These suggested “water” so I decided to quilt lots of ripples. I’m particularly fond of using stitch to make patterns and textures on the surface of fabric. My ripples were machine stitched using a twin needle and several variegated threads in the blue / green / yellow range. I considered adding hand stitching but decided against it as I liked the simplicity of the original design.
