My Journal Quilt 'to do list' has decreased to five!
This one is for the Contemporary Quilt Group.
Entitled "Ragwaar" it is loosely based on
wall paintings from Madhya Pradesh.
Great fun mono printing - a bit bold.
It is heavily free machine stitched.
Spirals - one thing I did learn when visiting the Museum at
Sarnath, the Buddha's curls go to the right. So the way to
go when stitching the spirals on the dots were, obviously
to the right. The Museum is really inspiring - wonderful
sculptures from the Gupta period, beautiful bronzes, and
the 3rd century Lion capital of the pillar erected by Ashoka
at Sarnath. Standing at 2.5m it is very impressive.
Adopted as India's national emblem.
