Quilt with topic "when or where sea and land meet", made for the group "Art Quilts Around the World", 31 x 31 cm, hand en rustdyed fabrics, appliqued and quilted by machine.
Ik ben uitgegaan van deze foto, die ik heb vereenvoudigd tot deze schets. Na wat experimenteren heb ik er voor gekozen om de kleuren zo veel mogelijk natuurgetrouw te houden en heb ik de kering met vliesofix geappliceerd:
Close to the deadline, because today is the official unveiling, I finished the quilt that is inspired by the Oosterscheldekering. The idea came really quick, as soon as I read the topic I knew I was going to make something about the "deltawerken', but making the actual quilt took a long time. I did have ideas how to make it, but I discarded them because I did not like them enough. Last friday I discovered I didn't have a months worth of time left, but just less than a week, so I just started, which is the best way to proceed when you are in a rut. I took this picture, which I simplified to this sketch. After some experimenting I choose to use colours that are as realistic as possible and fused it to the background.
First I sewed everything down using a running stitch and then I put a map of the "deltawerken" on it and quilted it. The Oosterscheldekering is at the red arrow.
