Uta Lenk: The Making of Shapes 19
I had started early this year, to be well in time with my contribution to the SAQA Benefit Auction, and managed to produce a nice little quilt with text on itwhich was slightly too big. After consulting with the organizers, who said that they had had difficulties selling quilts that were of ‘odd size’ rather than the 12” required for the auction, I went on and made another one. In my current series Shapes I had made three pieces which left me with a number of cut out circles. Being an all-time scavenger, of course I could not throw these out, and decided to use them.
I juxtaposed the circles with a few squares left over from another project, and played around with the orientation, first, and the backgrounds, second.
Rough edge appliqué, sinking threads on the back, and a densely stitched zigzag edge make it all complete.
This time, I managed to keep within the size restrictions, and even made the early bird deadline.
