Good Morning from Tyler Texas (where we stayed the night on our way to Baton Rouge)
Here is today's piece. It was made on Saturday. I used some more of my hand stamped fabrics, some dyed beads and cheesecloth. The quilting on this one is very simple; black in the major lines of the background and top stitching along the edges of the orange and sold black front piece. I really just wanted the fabrics to be the thing.
The depth and movement is yummy. I really like both of the stamped designs and how the small circles work against the wavy, cross hatch of the black and taupe. I assembled the top stack of beads with glue and layering then twisted some cheesecloth into strands and stitched it with a zig zag stitch to hold it together then tied the round beads to it. I really love how they lay against the bright black and hold their own against the busier fabrics.
Well, I'm back on the road,
