In 2012 I enjoyed touring Ireland. This artwork is a narrative of my experiences, love of photography, drawing and creating with textiles. The design represents 29 different views of Ireland and its people.
[Yvonne Line, Textile Artist 2017]
Using my photographs, I drew the visuals to size and used this as the pattern for the cutting out. A base fabric of calico was used to machine appliqué onto, using different colour thread. Assembled as stripes and then as a whole piece with polyester wadding and calico backing. Hand quilted with embroidery and crochet thread of different colours. Hand finished.
Materials include cotton and blends, pure wool donated from various suppliers in Ireland, textural materials, fusing, taffeta, satin, gauze netting and hand dyed fabrics.
