I need a name!


I just finished stitching this piece, its about 18" x 22". Lots of thread work, mostly straight running stitch and cross stitch with applied shapes that have been screen printed, stamped, dyed and painted.

I can already see that the upper left square of silk organza is too dark and I'll unpick it and find another one.

In the meantime it's heading out as a class sample on "Screen Printing for Stitchers". I've moved away from a long background in embroidery and have found that I really do miss it. The boundaries between "quilting" and "embroidery" really have blurred over the last few years and that can only be a good thing as we seek to work with a threaded needle in all its many forms........

But I do need a name for this little thing. The winner that I choose will get a hand dyed, printed and stamped fat quarter!

First thought that came to my mind is Suspended. Also maybe you want to change the second dark square up on the left. Beautiful piece.

It reminds me of the dock at sunset when we had a boat. If it were mine I'd use that in its name. very nice piece.

Confetti - that's what it looks like to me - as though someone threw a handful up into the air above your head, and you are looking up at it as it falls around you.
