|Beautiful Native girl 15" X 18"|
I wish I'd made it larger now, but what it did was add a hint of highlight, and subtly change the tone of the piece...
These are quality mylar threads, and easy to use with a size 90 metallica needle.
Even the binding had to be pieced from two different green fabrics
I didn't do a miter binding, I bound top and bottom with one green, sides another green and butted the ends .
I often do this on art quilts
Of course there was a decision about which color to use for binding and I auditioned some choices...
The rick rack I seemed intent on using somewhere, went between the pink and orange.
It repeated the wavery quilting lines of the sunset heat, and brought back the colors in the original stamp fabric.
If you remember, my friend Deb Gabel gave it to me when I asked, as she was throwing it away. The tiny pinwheels were cut offs from another project.
So the whole piece came from little throwaway pieces of fabric... I love that!
