Over the Nile

I sat in a felucca crossing the Nile with an old friend and we watched the hot air balloons going overhead in the very early morning, sadly there was no time left on our trip for us to do the same!
Bonded fabrics onto a pretty batik background, machine stitched and edged to emphasize the shapes.

First Flight

This piece is, as yet, unfinished. This is Hilary Martin's interpretation of "First Flight" and is applique over a hand painted surface.

Early Flight

And as I promised yesterday, here is my version of an early flight:

Not an early flight with a commercial airline, but the early flight of birds. Background is made from my hand dyed fabrics, for the birds I used a commercial black. Going through my stash I discovered that I do not have anymore any real dark fabrics. Maybe time for a dyeing session.

My quilt for the Early Flight theme is almost done, I will post it probably tomorrow. Our next theme will be: Filling in the Blancs' - picked by the random number generator.
If you want me to add new themes to the mother list, just send me an email and I will add them.

Here is my contribution for the theme Summer Adventures:
For this quilt I used the same technique as I did for the quilt which I completed last week. In a way you can call that a test piece :-). The strips of cheese cloth are stitched to the pieced background with seed beads.
