My Israel

I continued working on my landscape today. In between phone calls and some logistical and computer work, I sewed.


I placed 2 small bowls for the scraps for some more projects right next to the sewing machine. I place the scraps in them according to color families. It saves time so that I don't have to sort them later.

These will become 2 more projects





I experimented with color and texture layouts

I sewed the pieces using the wave landscape patchwork technique as my scraps were shorter than the base fabric and I wanted to create an interestingly shaped piece.

I checked to see whether the threads that I had chosen with the children yesterday were still the colors that I wanted - and yes they were.






The colors were perfect!

I could have quilted the wave landscape piece but I wanted a more textured tactile piece so I went looking in my collection of textured and collaged patchwork strips.

Color placement and textures. I always create a few experimental layouts before making my final decision.

From scraps to waves to a textured tactile fabric landscape.

I wanted to create my vision of a sand to sea to twilight sky of Israel and here it is .

What I normally do at this stage is to back and frame it with some fabric binding.


I want to keep this piece for myself so contrary to my usual technique . I think that I will add a black fabric frame which I will stretch over a wooden frame. It can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner and a water spray.
