Ragged and Black

Ragged and Black is a lyric from a Joni Mitchell song. I like to work with a title right from the start when I’m making a quilt and these words seemed to fit my crow character perfectly. The original image was a painting I made using gouache and Indian ink on watercolour paper. The image was scanned and digitally printed on a wide format printer using fibre reactive dyes. I free motion quilted the printed, wholecloth image and added detail with fabric painting and digitally embroidered text.

Some Day I’ll Fly Away

Some Day I'll Fly Away

39.5 inches x 58.5 inches
100cm x 149cm

This is one of my favourite quilts! It started life as one of my gouache and Indian ink paintings on a box canvas. The painting was photographed and the image digitally printed onto cotton poplin fabric by Jamie at the Fingerprint studio. I free motion quilted the wholecloth print and added the text added using foam alphabet stamps. The digital print is so faithful to the original – it shows every brushmark and even the texture of the canvas surface! If you take a look at the detail images below you’ll see how much the painting was enlarged to become the quilt.

This quilt was created by digitally printing an open spread page of my sketchbook. The original image was a gouache and Indian ink painting with stamped motifs using gold metallic acrylic paint. I carved the motif from a symbol I discovered on a vase at my local museum. I was intrigued by the shape of the symbol and I’m told it means longevity however, I used it as decorative pattern and wasn’t concerned that in printing I reversed the image!
