Quilter in Distress: Cindi Plant
Rescuer: Sophie Crittenden
"Happiness" • 14" x 17"
Cindi: "This project began by using Ricki Tim's
convergence technique with this fabulous batik. I could see flowers in a garden
set against an outstanding sunset. Even though I was loathe to cut into the
batik I proceeded, but then I was stuck. Suddenly it was somehow too busy and
finishing it eluded me."
Sophie: "I removed one strip to provide a concentrated
purple area in the lower left. I made a rubbing of happiness Kanji from a plaque
and cut, traced, and inked it on the UFO. I added many collage elements and
then first quilted in the ditch down every strip. It was not enough so I did an
overall swirl with variegated thread."
