Bletchley Park Exhibition 2
In keeping with my theme, I want a faded, night time feel to this piece so I have tried some quilting ideas that use the same colours as the fabric and lettering and have tried to keep it simple. Each letter (symbol) is quilted and I want to suggest the effect of a searchlight piercing the gloom and flack shells bursting.
So far my experiments have been just lettering and searchlight. I have to try out flack ideas this week.
I have busted a gut in the last 2 days to try out techniques for flack. Quite a difficult concept to convey in fabric. My sample piece is a bit heavy, so I'm going to add a firey centre and remove more of the black voile. I wish I'd made the piece a little smaller! There is so much to do!
