Art Every Day, Thursday, July 4th, 2013,
Good Morning all,
Here is today's new piece. From the bottom up, it begins with a layer of boiled wool, topped with wild raw silk, topped with hand dyed cotton velveteen (with a layer of batting underneath it), topped with a long scrunch of hand dyed rayon left over from a shirt my besty, I.V. Anderson made for me. I stitched the rayon down along most of it's edges and tacked it down in other places with a stay stitch. Then I quilted the yummy feathers in the velveteen. I love, love, love how it responded to the quilting stitch. The raw silk is top stitched along it's edge and that is about it.
I find the piece restful and flowing with calm energy and I love the color way too.
I'm off to my studio for some more quilting,
