Almost there....

More tweaking on my piece this week. I have it hanging in my studio and it is looking good. I find I am contemplating the finishing/mounting etc which means I must be almost there. Have been considering a colour to paint the surrounding mount and am favouring a navy blue which seems to suit colours in the piece. I have been placing the painted test corner on each corner at different times to see how it works.

Another detail....

Bottom right corner with painted test corner.

Top left with painted test corner.

Expressions Gallery in Upper Hutt is well worth a visit at the moment. Pinestream Quilters have their biennial exhibition, and world-renown Yoshiko Wada, textile and shibori expert, has kimonos from her own collection on display. Accompanying these is an exhibition of Metsuke, Buttons and Collars. Yoshiko gave a very interesting gallery talk yesterday to a well attended audience. She is currently tutoring a workshop at Whitireia Community Polytechnic, Porirua. Great to see such events happening in our area.

  1. Hi Diana

    I was wondering how you finish your pieces. Do you frame them or do you add a sleeve on the back like a regular quilt or something else?

    Love the colours in your latest piece.
