Musings of a dyer and fiber artist from Lord of the Rings and Narnia country, the South Island of New Zealand.

Those of you who have been following the last few posts about my new project will remember that the objective was to tone down the corner accents of hand dyed fabric. Above is the original layout (not stitched).
And here is layout #2 - slightly different angle, sorry - but you can see what a difference the screen printing has made to the way the quilt looks. I am much happier with it now. I did not attempt to reproduce the original layout - I just started from scratch and tried to ensure that there was a pattern with the corners, and that no 2 pieces were the same where they adjoin.
The dogs are, of course, completely familiar with this sort of thing and don't mess it up :-).
I welcome your comments! Please tell me which version you prefer, and why.
