The size had to be A4 which was quite a change from working on bigger quilts. The set theme was 'Landscape'. I often notice that quilters can interpret themes to fit whatever they are actually working on and I have to admit that is just what I did here. You will recognise my style at once!
The first one, I called 'Beneath our Feet - the Earth's inner landscape'. It is of course a mini version of 'Strata'. I wanted to work to see if I could work with a mottled background without the quilting getting lost.
I had tried using bright yellow on the darker bits, but that did disappear. Sticking to black works quite well I think.
The second piece I entitled 'My Inner Landscape - the circles in my mind'
I used a solid blue background, but two colours of thread.
