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:
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!
