Yesterday I bought a dozen or so old ties (hubby donated a few from his wardrobe also – in the name of art!) and I spent a few hours unpicking them last night. Today I made some of them up into an art quilt, thoroughly enjoying playing with colour and texture. I usually at least do a sketch or have some idea of where I’m going but this time I didn’t have any preconceived ideas and I changed direction several times. I used a commercial printed cotton for the border.
I still have some binding to add and although it was intended as a vertical piece I quite like it orientated horizontally! I can see myself doing a series of these......
