Following the principles a photographer’s gray scale, I developed a grade-colour textiles system for Australia quilters. I found quilters tend to collect colours instinctively and emotionally. I saw the need for a more complete range of colours to be made available. Fabric shops tend to supply mostly mid-range shades. I believe it’s often the colours you don’t like work more effectively. Establishing this graded-colour system as a foundation led me to hand printing the textiles, but with a photographic perspective. Frame, subject, background, and story are the keys to my design.
