New Orleans Sidewalk (Digital Pattern)
Travelling often gives you a chance to observe your environment with fresh eyes. While on a trip to New Orleans a couple of years ago, I spotted an interesting texture on the sidewalk as we explored the city. Once home I worked this image up into a quilt design. I took a small intense pattern, enlarged it, and deconstructed it. This gave me the areas in which I could play with the negative spaces within the piecing and the quilting. The quilting was done on my long arm Gammill Statler creating another level of texture and interest with different patterns and colours of thread. The in-between dots have a raised feel made by padding them with pellon and attaching them with needle turn applique after all the quilting is completed
