When I started this challenge I was a piece-maker with commercial fabric. All my quilts were pieced either using a pattern or paper piecing, or crazy piecing. My goal in participating was to enlarge my skill set in surface design. Since that time I have low-water immersion dyed, snow dyed, parfait dyed, shibori dyed, wax batiked, soy wax batiked, stamped, stenciled, shiva paint sticked, Smooched, painted, printed, silk screened, thermofaxed, beaded, couched, discharged, shrunk, photoshopped, CitraSolv, and probably several other techniques that don't come readily to mind. In other words, I have experimented more in the last year than ever before. Here is where you can see the monthly efforts.
I was also hoping in this challenge to develop my unique voice in surface design style and I think that I did that. The style is best portrayed in Garden of Eden. The style includes using my own fabric and handwork. There is nothing more exciting than to look at a quilt and knowing that it was just plain white fabric before you started! Here is Garden of Eden as it was shown at the Reveal.
