Inspiration

This will be written in English as I will link it to Off the Wall Fridays.

Last spring I went to an exhibition in Louisiana (outside Copenhagen) "Avantgardens kvinder 1920 - 1940" and I became very impressed of what I saw from Sonia Delaunay. Inspired by her I have made a quilt from mostly hand-dyed fabrics. The dark green and red are not hand-dyed, the background is linen I dyed into black and then folded and put into a chlorin bath, I really like the shade of grayish green it got. I have not finished the quilt yet, I am not sure if I shall have a binding or not.
Now I will link this to Nina Marie Sayre Off the Wall Fridays, click and have a look!

  1. Love the contrast of the red with the gray - it gives the quilt a great focal point without a lot of background noise! Well done!

  4. The result of the bleach discharge is very good. I expect it is a colour you could not get any other way. Fascinating.
