Rose Has Got Some Hips II Quilted



Image on the left is what Rose looked like before she was quilted.

Image on the right is after quilting.

I am not sure which orientation I like the best, the hips facing up or facing to the right.

Which way do you like the best?

Thanks your comments.

  1. No to the right, is more natural. Very nice quiltwork!

  2. To the right - more soothing and real. From what I can see - it is a beautiful piece!

  3. I like up. Plants grow up. I know sometimes they droop over to one side or the other, but... I like up best.

  4. Well, what about rotating that bottom (quilted) version another 90 degrees clockwise? (Not sure of the natural orientation of this plant.)

  5. Usually I am in favor of the unusual, but this time my vote is for upright! How do the rose hips usually go. I really like your piece, is it painted?

  7. The comments are wonderful. They certainly confirmed why I have a dilemma on which way for it to go. In this case, I think that either up or to the right would be natural. The upright makes it feel like a pretty traditional botanical illustration. The right facing orientation seems a bit less predictable, which is my preference. Seems a slight weighting towards the right in the comments as well.


    Louise, the design is put onto the hand dyed fabric with Tsukineko inks. I use a stencil process, creating the stencils out of freezer paper.

    Thank you all. This is very helpful.
