Collages for UWE

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!

  1. 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!!
