Quilted Wall Piece
Going back a few years here. This is a hand quilted, dyed wall hanging. I made this in 1993. I drew the forms with a permanent pen, very fine tipped. Then I "controlled" the color as I dipped it into the bath of color. The small white areas are cut away and a rich satin peeks through with an extra bit of batting to puff it out.
At the time I drew the design, I was "doodling" and doing some bead work on the surface as well. Now I understand that this type of drawing is called "zentangles" and there are a great many books out there on the subject.
I recently had a friend ask me to bring this to a quilt group to share. Unfortunately, I was unable to make that gathering. So, I thought I would share it here. Oh, yes. How long ago did I make this piece? 1993!!
It's all in the details....what will this Tuesday hold? Look carefully through out your day, it just may surprise you.
