It Was a Cold Winter's Night
How could I not get into my bin of indigo scraps for this challenge. It was a no brainer. And when, I say scraps, I mean scraps. I decided to go for a very scrappy, frayed edge land scape for this. The snowy area is a piece of shibori clamped silk that I had dipped in indigo. It was very pale and turned out to be the perfect snowy field. I cut strips of silk indigo shibori for the shadows of the fence.
Oh, and that fence! You will have to check out my blog to see what it once looked like. I had to sit and pick that thing apart and start over. I am so glad that I did. I then added in some of the wonderful indigo prints that Kristin gave me way back when she was living in Germany.
I am so happy with this piece because it reflects what I most love to do with my quilting now — the simple, abstracted landscape.
