last weekend i ran up a piece made up of chunks of kimono fabric (bought as a scrap bag from kimono house in the fabulous nicholas building in swanston street) - i fused them to a length of indigo cotton (bought from tombo in westgarth - one of my favouritest shops) and then fused that to some crimson japanese cotton. machined over and around all the edges and here it is.
but it lacks something - it just hangs there - quite colourful and balanced but lacking in oomph.
so, any ideas? i have thought of foiling, stamping with discharge paste or doing some meandering stiching in an abstract tree of life kind of way but my imagination is as slack-jawed as the quilt itself and i don't have enough clarity or purpose to actually do anything.
suggestions or encouragement most welcome
