I took the kits apart and had fun starting new art quilts with the fabrics and threads. I've been on a roll lately with starting lots of new artwork. I've not been so good at finishing up the pieces. I have a bunch of pieces on our design wall that just need to be mounted somehow...
This spirally one uses Stef Francis hand-dyed silk noil in the background. One of the Stef Francis creative kits suggests layering sheer fabrics and then doing cut-work so I wanted to play with that idea. I layered gold lace and a sheer shiny fabric over the silk noil, machine stitched spirals, and then cut away some of the lace and sheer fabric. I've started to hand stitch on it and I'm stitching over some bits of sequin fabric.
(Unfortunately I had trouble photographing this one because of the red shiny sheer fabric.)
Maybe I'll do some more supplies organizing today since I don't really need to start any more pieces. It's holiday open studios here at Western Avenue Studios, but since we had a big snow storm last night, it's pretty quiet in the building.
