Free Motion Landscape - Upside Down
Last week I did a bit of experimenting to see if I could start a free motion landscape. Once I had put in a couple of lines of quilting to represent a hedgerow, I realised I had done it upside down. The creamy yellow was supposed to be the background of the sky, and I had managed to end up with it at the bottom. I have to confess I was rather cheesed off about it.
So I turned the whole thing upside down and turned the first lines of stitching into reflections. What started out as a hedgerow has turned into the far shore of a lake. I haven't a clue what I am going to do next, but at least this week I have enjoyed myself. It feels like scribbling with a treadle, rather than quilting.
