A TIME TO STITCH - A TIME TO TEAR OUT
I made a '3 layer sandwich' - as quiltmakers like to say: top, batting & backing.
Machine stitched around the clouds to emphasize them. I thought the stitching gunked it up. Tore it out!
What about the bottom fabric? Will I machine quilt around the pouring rain? I'll make some samples before I stitch the real thing.
I do want to use the metallic effect thread though - but how will that look? OK, another sample.
Actually I am wondering if this should be a quilt at all! Maybe the fabrics should just be collaged on the BFK paper!
The process continues on this next piece in the Currents series...
