Here we go...

...on quilt number one. Bit of a departure for me, the basic quilt will be pieced with large and different sized/shaped pieces of Japanese woven fabrics with lovely textures. Each piece will be embroidered individually, with wadding on the back. Then I will piece them together, add another layer of wadding and applique/embroider/embellish it to bring it all together...I have planned it quite carefully in my head, but I suspect the actual making will be a bit of a roller coaster ride, which is good as I don't like just following a plan, I like to improvise. The design is based on the Bronze Age rock carvings I saw last Summer in Sweden- they really made a huge impression on me.
