OK, on to something new. LOL Yup, I am forever trying something new. I wanted to try to weave my fabric in different methods just to see what I like better instead of piecing my quilt top to look like it is woven. An example is this bee quilt. I cut the strips then took each strip and sewed it in half. Iron it flat so seam was on the back side. Then I wove different fabrics together. Here is the finished piece.
This time I wanted some raw edges. At least that is how it started out. I laid a piece of batting down first and wove these batik fabrics that go from light to dark grey and black and some blue. This new one I am working on will be called Moonlight Garden. At least I think so.
I decided to add another strip to the top across because I could see the batting no matter how tight the weaving was.
You can still see that it is a raw edge but not the batting underneath.
I then decided to take out my shiva white paint stick and paint in some little clouds and mist. To do this you take a piece of paper and tear it. Then you place the paper on your fabric and take your stencil paintbrush full of white paint and brush across the paper edge. It leaves an interesting design.
This mini quilt is going to be a mixed media piece. I am going to use some batting and cheese cloth to make the flowers. I think! It is still a work in progress. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow!
