En toen het idee er eenmaal was, was het quiltje zo gemaakt:
Layers of cloth (that hide their faces)
This months topic of the abstract challenge group is: Layers. Mary, our moderator already gave some suggestions: Layers of fabric, paint or color. Layers of hills, rocks in a wall or autumn color on a mountainside. Or, layers of clothing, since it’s really gotten cold around where she lives: Long underwear, shirt, sweater, vest, jacket, scarf....
The second idea I had were geological layers in the ground. Nothing wrong with the idea, but Marijke already made a beautifull quilt with this idea: http://quiltpage.homestead.com/geologischetijd.html. If I would make a little quilt with this idea, it would somehow look like a weak copy of it. So, that was out.Last night, when I was in bed and almost sleeping, a third idea came to me. I was going to make something with fabrics, but not litterally. My quiltlet would be about layers of cloth. The layers of cloth that hide the faces of women. Once the idea was born, the quiltlet came not much later.
