I have been experimenting and making fabric collages. Well, that is what I am calling them. As they are pieced rather than layered, technically, I guess they are not collages but I have been using the design concepts of collages. I have also been making holes in my quilts – purposely. The collages are mounted on canvases so through the holes is gesso’d in white to look like the wall behind them. Maria thinks I should actually cut holes in the canvases – currently that is a step too far!!!
Here is one:
To crop the above image, I used my PhotoElements app which I have never used before. And then I discovered a lovely feature which made the collage look very different. I rather like the new image!!!
All the collages will be on view at UWE, Bristol from 12th to 14th November at the West Country Quilt Show. I am sharing a stand with a friend, Stephanie Crawford who does lovely painterly quilts and wins important and pretigious awards.
Must get back to stitching on sleeves!

This looks great, look forward to seeing them at UWE, and yes that sounds like our Maria! 😊 k3n x
Hello from Canada. I love the circle shape of your collage. I also agree about cutting an actual hole in the wood. Mirrors in behind the material hole would also be interesting. Keep on experimenting. I love it!!
I like your use of holes. You should definitely be brave and go for a straight-through hole. The circle shape from PSE is fascinating.
