First some images of a wall hanging or quilt created by Ira some years ago.
She had found it and reacquainted herself .It has her trademark 'bling'.Layers of organza and other irridescent fabrics,gold braids and metallic threads .The surface is very rich with lots of stitch and has been "burnt back" with a variety of patterns to reveal layers beneath.
She has continued with the process to the present day ,adding and refining her technique.This is her latest addition and will be presented in the turned wooden bowls she has sourced locally.
Her next technique is lino printing to create more surfaces to colour and stitch.
This is how the block on the right looks when she has begun to use colour and add some threads.Obviously much more to come knowing Ira.
