|The Sky at Night|
Little Bird began as a block print on silk. I added a wash of yellow and orange beads to the background, then fused the back, and applied the fused binding. I am pleased with the hanging bracket-a twig, wire and beads.
The Sky at Night began with a piece of hand-dyed fabric. I sewed lines of hand stitching across the cloth, gathered it as tightly as I could, then imersed it in dye. The patterning is very subtle but once stitched and beaded I think it is effective. I beaded a lacey border onto the fused binding then made the hanging wire by stringing beads on Aculon and making loops at the end for sewing it onto the quilt with crimp beads.
The show is at Emerald Island Framing and Gallery, with an opening reception on Friday evening.
