Birth of Spring
My entry represents the birth of spring after the winter. It shows spring flowers appearing on a brown background, representing the dull colours of winter and has highlights of green and yellow, symbolising spring.
The main fabrics used were taken from existing garments, which were deconstructed and used to cut out the pattern pieces. This project had a lot of new experiences for me, including using quilting for the first time and having to struggle with the bulk all the layers created! I adapted my pattern from one that I had used in a previous project, so I was aware of the fit, and that meant I didn't have to start from scratch.

Wool (taken from blanket)
