Below is another piece of work I have done towards my city & Guilds qualification. It is not an assessment piece but a sampler quilt I have created from various commercially printed and hand dyed fabrics to experiment paint effects on, these included Markle/Shiva oil pastels, textile paint and discharge paste. The discharge paste was not at all successful on the commercial prints but worked very well on the hand dyed. The whole piece was assembled, quilted and bound before these techniques where used. This piece also includes a couple of edge finish samples, i.e. beads, stitch and the addition of torn fabric strips within and on the edge of the binding.
