Slice Quilt

2002

(collaborative project – my section is the top painted hand)

Materials:

Cotton, fusible web, batting, acrylic paint, yarn, wooden stick

Techniques:

Fused raw edge appliqué, pieced, painted,  machine and hand stitched

 

Knots & Tangles

This was my first attempt at painting on fabric. I had to make several attempts before I could get a predictable response from the materials I was working with.

Inspiration

A member of my critique group suggested that we divide a photo into twelve sections and have individuals work on each section independently. The size was specified, although any style or technique could be used. A color copy was given to each person to keep the palette in relative harmony.
