A Personal Quilt
Sea Grape Harbor
Wednesday, April 6, 2022
The design was a Laura Heine creation. This seahorse was first done on a film, The cartoon of the seahorse was underneath the film. Then the motifs were added to the design . The motifs had adhesive on the reverse side. Size 23X42. It was fun picking out the different motifs I wanted to use.
This panel was done from an experiment using bleach and black cloth. The leaves were laid on the black fabric and sprayed with bleach, Every black fabric comes out a different color. In this case the result was a rusty orange. I then appliqued some leaves on top of the silhouette.

The inspiration for this quilt came from a book. Kake - Jiku, or hanging scrolls. They were the beautiful scrolls found in many Japanese homes. A long piece of Japanese paper or silk onto which a work of calligraphy or a piece of art work was mounted.
There were 15 designs that were reminiscent of the hanging scrolls. All of the designs were created using applique. Some feature fabric origami, where two pieces were sewn together and folded into shapes of three-dimensional flowers. Other designs use Sashiko, a Japanese version of a quilting stitch.
I worked on this quilt for the year of Covid 19. It was my "Go To" project that kept me going.
This block featured little origami flowers.
