I've been spending time over the last few months working out what my quilting signature is. My recognisable art style. It was easy to write what I didn't do but was much harder figuring out what I did. I started with a what I like and don't like list. I knew I loved vibrant colour, raw edge applique and strong design and that i don't like wishy washy colours, floral fabrics and no cohesion of the quilt design. But that still didn't really decide where I was heading and what I represent.
So to try to work out what I like I started trying to do different ideas on journal quilts. I've done printing, shadow applique, painting, crayons, beading, mono printing, shiva paintsticks, and many more ideas. I've started to reallise I like to do whole cloth work using surface dying/printing techniques. I also like heavy machine quilting using a variety of coloured cottons which enhance the quilt.
