Almost done

art quilting

As boring as it is to show pictures of white fabric with white stitching, that is what you are going to get here today :)
Apart from some very small bits, which I may or may not try to use at some point in the future, all that is left in the scrap bag are some pieces of white/off white.
A discussion of the wonderful work of June C Barnes and her Stitching To Dye technique while at my Art Quilt group last week, brought me to the thought of trying something similar here, but with paint instead of dye, of course.

So here is the piece all stitched up and ready to go. At this point I have no idea how it will turn out or what approach I am going to take. Neat or diluted paint/Pre wet or not/One colour or more...
Decisions, decisions!!

P.S. The stitching was based on this done previously

  1. oh so funny - I love this just as it is, and I was thinking "this is going to be gorgeous" - and then I continue reading and see you're going to do what I've been doing lately in all my art pieces - preparing the background, quilting, then painting over it! (Of course, I don't start with WHITE fabric because, that would smart! ;))

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
