quilting signature

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.
