Elaine's second alphabet final piece

Right from the beginning I had decided on a wall hanging as the finished piece. As you would have noticed from the monthly photos, the squares were attached to a backing fabric which was the base for the hanging. I couldn’t be sure, until the end, that the colours and decoration would work together as a whole, but I am really pleased with the way it turned out

As the work progressed it seemed to assume an Asian influence and not just because of the kimono fabric I had used, but also because of the nature of the triangular-shaped letters. I added the bamboo rod at the top to enhance this feeling. I really enjoyed working with the beautifully patterned fabrics.
