While at Festival this year I treated myself to a long length of printed cotton from Ghana. The pieces created by Esther have always attracted me and I am the proud owner of 3 of her lengths of fabric already.
Her colour combinations are always exciting and the hinted at motifs just make you itch to get creating. This is a small section of the fabric which shows the colours and some of the patterning.
I started playing with the spiral motif, looking at different ways of creating a spiral and applying it to the fabric.
This is an 18" square sample.
Close up, you can see the stitching detail that I am increasingly enjoying adding to my work.
