I have finished my mother and child quilt . I have named it My wee one.
I knew how I wanted the Mother and baby to be quilted on this piece but really struggled to come up with and idea for the skirt and background.
I quilted lines around the mother and baby's face, clothes and hands. I quilted the wavy hair.
In the skirt I quilted flowers on all the red painted parts and then thought that was enough until it wouldn't all sit flat when I put the quilt together. So I added circles around the flowers and put an arch filler in in between the circles.
I originally thought spirals would be great in the background but when I placed the design on the back it wasn't enough of a contrast. So I tried a square geometric design which gave a wonderful contrast.
I am thrilled with how this art work came out. I think it really tells the story of the relationship between a mother and child. Now for my next people quilt..........
This is gorgeous! And such a beautiful story.ReplyDelete
