Summer Cycling

Another vintage poster, adapted for silk paints, with a silk-screened image designed by Rita Bascobert for Criterium in the 1980’s.  I like the waving back and forth in the two images, joined together by hexagons hand-pieced using paper templates.

The image transfers are a new process for me.  I find that enjoy them most when combined with traditional piecing.  The grouped hexagons are most often part of a ‘Grandmother’s Garden’ overall pattern.  For this quilt, they may represent cobblestones or just the refraction of light on a sunny day at the parade.
