This is the work of Dorothy Caldwell, impressive if a little sombre.
These are details from quilts made by Jacqueline Heinz the colours are much brighter in real life and her colour combinations were superb the one on the left should be a limey green.She had sold a lot of her work and it was very reasonable about 500.00 for a quilt with hours of work in it, hers were definitely my favourite
Details taken from some of the quilts on display the pink and the black were so tactile.
I have wanted a play with a thermofax image for a while,so to find a stand at FOQ was a treat,I bought this image of a feather it comes in its own screen so you can use it at once, very easy to use with clear instructions, their site is http://www.thermofaxscreens.co.uk/ you can order the screens they have already or get them to make one from your own designs, well worth having a look,there is a lovely one of cow parsley and having tried to make a stamp of this and failed I think I may be getting another one
This is what I achieved with my stencil on the left using discharge paste on procion dyed calico,it bled a little so not as well defined as the paint which I did on calico dyed with cochineal, all those poor little beetle bodies I felt like a mass murderer.It is pink the camera has just bleached the colour out.
