I started out by giving Rita a pink and red arch.
Inspired by a Tibetan painting of Jnanatapa C.1350, I surrounded the arch by squares of more red and pink. I appliqued the arch and fabric immediately around it (reminisent of stained glass) leaving the edges of the fabric unfinished, creating a soft edge.
Then I pieced it all together…
Tomorrow I’ll start to back and tack it.
