Here is today's newest piece. It began with the multicolored fabric with the circles on it. I love the combo of warm oranges and reds with cool blue violet and I wanted to use the circular bone beads.
Again, it is very simply organized, this time, so that both the printed fabric and the bone beads could shine. I quilted the printed fabric with vertical, wavy lines that move between the dark blue violet circles and stitched outside of those circles with no stitch inside so that they would pouf. The twisted yellow gold fabric is top stitched down and the blue violet Mexican jute has long, horizontal lines stitched in it.
I've done several pieces in this series with a similar composition. It's easy to work with, has just enough interest and is restful.
