Bosna #4. Hand dyed and commercial cottons, machine pieced and machine quilted. 66.5"x 64". This turned into a rather long and involved quilting project. After quilting the first orange square and its borders, I was faced with deciding what to do with the rest of the piece. Hmmm.
The second block was the purples and since it was more rectangular in shape, I decided on two circles. Using the smaller dinner plate as my circles, I dinked around with more feathers. I photographed it hanging slightly off my table to catch the shading. Dark colors are hard to shoot.
Next was the green square, and I was feeling adventurous. I used a soap sliver to denote the squiggles and quilted next to them, leaving the squiggles empty, but they kept looking messy, so eventually I returned and quilted them too, in a lighter green. This photo is tweaked in Picasa to show the texture.
The last square is a hand dyed blotchy teal, and was quilted in offset rings of plumes.
Bosna #4 was quilted on my Janome 6500P, so I guess I am convinced that I don't have to have a fancy schmancy quilting machine...O well.
