New Work

I made a couple more pieces for my show on Pender Island. These are more fabric collage than quilts, they are layers of fabric stitched down without any batting.
I loved doing the stitching by hand and just used running stitch and some cross stitch and hatch marks. I wanted them to appear like worn ancient textiles that might have been found in some archeological dig. I used dyed, screenprinted and stamped cotton and linen. Its also a great way to use up cut bits from other projects.

I love them! I keep wanting to do more 'non quilted' fiber art pieces, and you have inspired me to try... thanks, Susan!
