"All washed up"
I came away from a couple of days "playing" with block printing and gelli pad experimenting with a number of cloths created from cleaning up sponges, blocks, plates and pads, collected together in plastic bags and a piece of well creased cotton on which I had gently wiped my sponges to remove the excess dye.
They were ,of course , all colour related and along with some trial prints, blended together beautifully and I thought, "try and make a quilt!"
These were my raw materials.
It's going to be a quilt on a quilt and my first piece if stitching was to tear strips off some of the cloths and join them, by stitch and flip onto a backing and wadding.
Now I have to construct the layer this will sit on.
