Art Every Day, Saturday June 15, 2013
Here is today's new piece and again I had loads of fun. I'm so enjoying machine quilting these days and this piece is yet another response to that. I began by laying an extra piece of batting on top of some green painted batting then placed on the six large pieces of fabric then I topped those with the two long strips of hand painted fabric left over from another project.
I decided to quilt each one with a linear type of motif and tried to have the lines moving in a different direction on each one. I top stitched along the edge of the painted rectangles so that they would really pop off the surface. The extra layer of batting made any unquilted area between quilting lines really pouf up too. I love the sense of depth this has too but surprisingly the depth seems to be coming from actual layering position rather than color, quilting density, color scale or value.
Well that's about it for this piece,
