The David Hockney Challenge was just the beginning…..

Update on my Newton…..

This is an update on my Newton quilt.  I’ve taken my inspiration from the fact that Newton was an Alchemist….not something I had realised until I began my research into his life and work.  I don’t know if it’s true but I read that he wrote more papers on the subject of Alchemy as he did any other.  My design is along the lines of an Alchemy illustration and will have planets, cherubs and various other bits added.  The large disc will eventually become a symbol for the Philosophers Stone and will have a prism radiating out from it……all sounds chaotic but I’m hoping I can pull it together!

Work in progress on my Isaac Newton quilt

Still a long way to go!

I’ve not yet had any experience of  “blocking” a quilt but I can see it being necessary with this one to get it back into shape after all the quilting.  Hilary Beattie has some wonderful YouTube tutorials about her work and one of those explains the process really well so I will have to give it a go.

This is very much “work in progress” with lots more appliqué to be added so it will look quite different by the time it’s finished.
