Blue RakeWoodcut Quilts
Like Farm (the quilt in my previous post) Blue Rake is made in a woodcut style. I begin with a large piece of black fabric and add fused fabric elements to the surface. By leaving a small gap between the fabric elements a black line will outline each element. It gives the illusion of a woodcut or cartoon-like feel.
I love the graphic quality of woodcuts and have quite a collection of books illustrated in that style. You can also build your fused quilt on another color than black. So far I've used yellow, blue and red. Yellow is my favorite. It has a certain glow about it and makes me feel sunny all over.
