Page 3 of the Magic Isle cloth book; page size is about 7″ x 11″. The music print is one of my favourite fabrics, though I always only had a tiny piece of it. It came in a mixed bag of quilting cotton scraps from one of the quilting supply shops online, several years ago.
I expect you could quite easily make your own by scanning some sheet music and printing onto cotton. In this piece I’ve covered it with some very sheer dark blue chiffon just to knock back the whiteness a little.
And the green silk on this page (above) – likewise, a tiny scrap, but perfect grass-green in real life, not the blueish tint you see here. Cloth holds and reflects light in a way that paint doesn’t, and it’s almost impossible to get the effect in a photograph.
The last two pages tomorrow – plus a small announcement about the weekend.
