Art Every Day, Saturday, June 22, 2013
Here is today's new piece. I began it with the center most fabric that I created yesterday with thickened dyes. I grabbed a couple of cottons in slightly mottled red violet and blue to go with it along with some turquoise canvas and deep blue Mexican jute. I layered it all up on top of some dull blue green boiled wool and stitched.
The center is quilted in a dull blue green with just a few intersecting straight lines stitched at different angles. The blue cotton is quilted in alternating straight lines and the red violet has a decorative feather in it.
My favorite part is the coiled fabric circle in the turquoise square. I like the piece, but mainly because I like the dye painted fabric. However, it does have some balance issues which I would work to fix if it weren't a daily piece.
There will always be another one tomorrow and I look forward to using this fabric again.
