The Secret Jungle

 

This is the second piece I’m entering into the Festival of Quilts this year. It’s been an on going project that I’ve finally managed to move along. The machine stitching is done, it’s just a lot of hand stitching to do now. I’ve enjoyed this piece a lot as whilst I normally try to extract too elements from my work to prevent a piece from being too busy, with this and the jungle theme in general I find I can just keep adding. Jungles are not minimalist. The hand stitching needed is quite daunting though, as some of the layers are difficult to get the needle though; pliers are useful.

Following on are a couple of close ups, not yet finished. This now means I have six sizeable pieces of work on the go…
