I started working on my Shibori Hankie quilt today. I began by cutting out the designs in the hankies that I found interesting. Because they’re so thin, I backed them with white cotton fabric.
Then I chose a blue fabric to sew around them. I had a few blues to choose from, but I liked the color as well as the texture of the linen fabric I chose.
The piece above is what I got done today. It’s not very big yet, about 20 inches square.
I had a lot of interruptions to my day so didn’t get a lot of studio time. But I do like the way the small hankie pieces look in the dark blue. They remind me of my macro lens photos of plants or insects. Or like something you’d see under a microscope.
