A selection of cloths that will become backgrounds, pinned and ready for tacking. The American word for tacking – basting – always makes me smile. In the UK we baste roasting turkeys and chickens.
These fabrics were layered quite intuitively, without thinking too much about what they will become. Usually I have a few background cloths prepared as ‘spares’, but at the moment I haven’t any left. I’m also preparing some layered squares, ready for piecing together at a later date.
