While participating in a Sue Benner class in September, 2019, I created this fiber art composition. Part of the instruction included learning Sue’s fabric fusing techniques. This small item contains a grouping of fabrics that were fused to a solid black cotton. The black fabric gives the pieced center prominence.
To make the fabric collage I used small sections of raw-edged fabrics gathered from multiple sources. One of the fragments was from a polyester shirt and three other bits have fabric paint added to them. All were overlapped at least 1/4” to eliminate gaps.
To embellish the colorful fabrics I added lines of quilting with a variegated thread. On the black cotton I used like-colored thread to machine stitch stitch straight lines in a pattern echoing around the pieced center.
The outer edges of the black material are protected by a facing. To aide in display a hanging sleeve was added to the back. Also attached to the back is a hand-stitched label. In its finished state, my finished fiber art quilt measures 12” x 15”.
The Finished Piece:
Before closing let me thank you for showing an interest in my activities. I am grateful for your participation and look forward to your comments.
