Another Make up Piece; for 8.19.13,
Good Evening again,
For this piece, I really just wanted to use the silk that I had dye painted with thickened dyes. I just love the color way of soft red tones with golden yellow and dull black. It's yummy. So, I put it in the background on top of a piece of soft, pale red, dyed bamboo felt. I added the bold, yet somewhat dull, black and white print which I in turn topped with another bit of dye painted fabric.
I quilted the background in light, dull tone of red using swirls and undulating lines. Then I stitched in white in the white areas of the block print. I stitched the printed grid in yellow in the central square then stitched on that fabulous bone bead.
I really, really like this piece, mostly because of the fabrics and colors, but I think the quilting is doing a great job too.
