The next step……………….

In this vintage process is to emphasize the quilting motifs even more than they are at present. The quilt stitching, especially of a “whole cloth” type (mostly “negative” space) is most effective when the stitched motifs/designs are dramatically different in scale (larger vs smaller/micro) and style (curves vs straight lines/geometric). In this piece, a change of scale is what I have choosen and, in the process, will cause the “background” to recede by flattening it with micro-stippling (LOVE) which will result in the  open, puffier designs to become more eye-catching/light-catching=dramatic!!! This kind of drama I like!!! Check  here for the preceding steps to this project. So, we are at this stage….the purple arrows are towards the areas left to “flatten”…….IMG_0440_LI. Micro-stippling will take care of that!!!! IMG_0444. The purple arrow=”puff”. Pink=awesome! IMG_0448_LI IMG_0446. Moving on to the next section…….til next time………… ‘Click’ on photo to enlarge.
