My Celebration Cloth



I spent the last two weeks with Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn. I did this piece this week at the workshop. The assignment was to create a celebration cloth using your original design. The first week was about developing designs based on the historic patterns and making them your own. This one is a mandala celebrating me. I created it on aquabond (a wash away adhesive stabilizer) using sheers and painted lutrador. I then used machine stitching to connect the pieces, trying to keep a thought to the negative spaces created. I still might work a little more on it or more likely will do a second piece based on this one.
