For me I decided that Initiative meant I would begin a series, take the plunge and go for it.
As all my sketches seem lately to revolve around full, sensuous curving shapes and lots of circles I thought I would base the series on circles.
The pieces on the left are mounted and floating above the surface of the rest of the quilt. I used my hand dyed cottons and went back in to them with discharge, painting and foiling. The quilting was done with my new stash of King Tut variegated threads (which I love, but on a solid color show a lot more than I expected).
The final work is mounted onto canvas, which I adore. I left the edges wonky and next time I may not (I thought it would be ok for this mounting technique, but I don't care for it as much...live and learn).
