Tulips on Tiptoes

This set of quilts, are worked on natural scoured cotton, with applied gesso, monoprinting and roller printing. The tulips are applied with dyed bonded shapes with the use of Litho-coal to provide the necessary three-dimensional effects. Greater emphasis is also created by hand drawing back into the quilts. They are finally heavily machine quilted, with medium weight Vilene used instead of a wadding to give a firmer finish.
