For first 'quilt' I went for a traditional design with same cotton cloth top and bottom over a fleece padding. Machine stitching the quilting lines I then decided to fray the fabric as this was a fabric samples which had not been used in Chapter 4
Sample 5.5.9 inspire by my stone/shell from Coral Beach on the Isle of Skye could fall between a shaped or padded exploration using melon pips and a cheese cloth top fabric
Samples 5.5.11 and 12 again explore cording with piping, zig zag and a knotted string in an attempt to replicate the erosion of the Arbroath Abbey wall
For a finale and following an inspiration regarding tea bags on the Distant Stitch Facebook page, thank you Sian, I looked at my morning mug of tea and thought ...I wonder!!! The original teabags were square but mine... well they were triangles! So here they are top and bottom which is which? There were a multitude of options that I tried but opted for classic shape. I have a feeling teabags will become another thing to save as the option of tea dyeing was starting to occupy my natural dyeing tendencies.
