Bluebell Walk

A carpet of bluebells is one of my favourite God's creations ever! I used a landscape photo (with a kind permission of the photographer) to help me design the layout.

I have chosen a"confetti" technique to convey the light and shadow play of the morning sun in the woods. With this technique, tiny pieces of fabrics are scattered on a batting, covered with tulle, and then quilted all over to hold the pieces in place. 

I also decided to add some free-motion embroidery to create depth and colour variation. Angelina fibres are used to represent the sunlight.

Quilt size 60 x 60 cm. 
 I found that a simple wooden frame suits this quilt best, so that it can be displayed like a painting.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my work!
