Art Every Day, Tuesday, Oct 1, 2013,
Here is today's new piece. It is like the past few days, based a a piece of dye painted fabric. The multicolored print came first then the reddish dye painted batting followed by the mottled orange and the mottled yellow.
I ripped and laid all of the fabrics into position then quilted the hell out of the orange in an attempt to make it recede which I think it has. Then I added some some circle quilting to the narrow yellow strip to echo the circles in the print. Finally, I quilted around each of the large reddish circles in the print.
I liked it at that point, but I had ripped some strips of red fabric to use so I twisted those up and braided them loosely, something new, and tacked the braid down at the ends and a few areas in between. Now, I really like it. It's bold yet simple, bright but not overwhelmingly so and the color way makes me happy.
I'm makin' up for some missed ones, so I'll see you back in a bit,
