Embellishing the Line

Over the last few years I've been trying to move my stitching from more traditional style quilts towards something that is more contemporary and expressive of my ideas and the forms I love. When I posted yesterday I realised that one common feature of these pieces has been in the use of hand embroidery (as I'd previously thought of it) or an embellishment of the line. I really enjoy doing the handwork but experience has also shown me that I am no hand quilter.

So embellishment and embroidery it is for me - here are some detail shots of some of my relatively recent quilts that I have hanging in my home. Night Sky over Kai Iwi; Wild Irish;
Pathway to the Labyrinth II; and
Pathway to the Labyrinth
