I printed my altered photograph of Brighton Pavilion and sewed it onto a piece of felt and then using free machine work I stitched over some of the lines in the photo.
Then I turned it over - and the other side was revealed
I really liked that side – and I don’t generally like lime green!
I wondered what it would look like with a bit of glitz so I repeated my experiment with red fabric and silver thread.
I decided that gold thread would’ve been better and some fabric with some variation would also be better. I also decided to replace the felt with Pelmet Vilene as this is stiffer and means I can (hopefully) make the box without needing to use cardboard. Here is this experiment in progress.
This is Jane Edmond's work in progress towards Halfway Between. Here's what she says:
"It is inspired by 'Halfway between the gutter and the stars', a song by Fat Boy Slim. I hope this quote doesn't contravene some copyright. I have been working on the gutter, picking up the litter I find on walks with the dog. It will not be a quilt, but applique on hessian. The figure is an outline from a life drawing class. I'm having fun doing it, even though I have got to the stage of hating it!"
