I finally took my work for my Diploma in Patchwork and Quilting to college today to be 'signed off' so I have officially completed - hooray! The photo above is of my quilt which was one of 3 pieces I had to design and make from scratch. It measures 60 inches square and was made with my hand dyed fabric (the background) and batiks. Here's a closer view:
The other two pieces were this foundation piced miniature made with silk fabrics measuring 12" by 12":
....and this bag which features a photo of a flower which I manipulated in Photoshop and printed onto cotton fabric:
There was a lot of other work involved too, such as research into the history of patchwork and quilting, work on mathematical patterns and reseaching the work of comtemporary quilters as well as presentation books on how the above three pieces were designed and made - phew! Many thanks go to my tutors Diane, Ann and Sue for their expertise, guidance and patience.
I'm really pleased to have finished all the work and now am looking forward to catching up on all my other WIPs!
