Find your way from the upper-left corner past the butterfly to the lower-right. With regards to Jo Edkins for showing everything you always wanted to know about mazes.
|Colorful Dreams (Kleurrijke dromen 2005) 125cm x 97cm (49" x 38")|
Inspired by a photo. After earlier successful attempts at making quilts based on photos, this is the first time I used curved shapes to follow the natural curves of the subject. Both the design and the quilting pattern were created on the computer. Quilt detail.
|Colored Blocks 2 (Gekleurde blokken 2 2005) 71cm x 98cm (28" x 38.5")|
An idea developed from the fabric patterned with small colored blocks, as used in the quilt. Quilt detail.
|New Life (Nieuw Leven 2005) 108cm x 148cm (42.5" x 58.5")|
The white leaves refer to new life ('a blank canvas'), developing in a colorful world. New life also points to the source of the leaves: the white shapes are 'scraps' left over from earlier quilts, brought to life in this design. The Japanese characters were added last to the design and mean as much as 'sapling' or 'young tree'. The echo-quilting around the leaves remind me of a Japanese rock garden. Quilt detail.
