Art Every Day, Friday, April 19, 2013
I had so much fun with yesterday's twisted fabric spirals that I just had to do another one today. I also had a small group of toned, blue violet fabrics that i had been dying to use. So, I layered up a background and did some simple quilting then I cut up the swirl fabric making sure to get some strips that had ruffles on them and stitched up the large swirl. The ruffled fabric strips made the swirl even more textural than the plain strips and I love the way it looks in the tail.
I like this piece. Its simple and has interesting depth and it really shows off the fabrics.
Now, off to work, playing with a private student today and working on the sample for one of my new classes, Hippie Couture.
