Here is today's new work. It began with a piece of dye painted fabric that features faded tones of yellow, red, orange and dark gray. I laid it on top of red dye painted batting then quilted it heavily. I quilted big Black Eyed Susan like flowers using the dark gray circles in the background as the centers of the flowers.
Then, I laid out the four pieces of heavy canvas that I had dyed with a dark gray dye. I left all the 'hairy' bits for added texture. The gray strips are quilted with a pale yellow wavy line and straight lines and circles in a dusty red colored thread.
The canvas is so heavy that my camera wants to focus on it and push the other two layers; background and batting, into far negative space making it difficult to see the more decorative quilting there.
As with yesterday's piece, I like this one quite a bit, mostly because of the high contrast. It was a lot of fun to quilt too.
