Well, here I am, in my new place at WordPress. It’s different, & will take a bit of getting used to, but here is my challenge piece for the Fiberactions challenge this month, “IMPRESSION”.
I really enjoyed this challenge. I used cotton layered with bits of silk chiffon. Both of which, I had painted with several different textile paints & rubbings with Shiva Oil Sticks
After free motion machine quilting the piece, I mounted it over a stretched canvas, & finished the edges with pieced fabrics.
I stamped the face image with fabric glue, & applied copper foil. I also added the woven wire ribbon & woven grass cloth pieces that I used in the painting of the fabric, & stitched them directly to the surface.
You can check out the rest of the quilts at the Fiberactions blog.
