I am fascinated by the programs on television that share the pros and cons of the tiny house movement. This fiber art piece, with all of its interconnected fabric squares and rectangles brought to my mind a vision of how a tiny house village might appear. This vision, along with the image created on the back side by the quilting, inspired me to name my composition Tiny House Village.
Tiny House Village was created using scraps of fabric layered on top of a sandwich of cotton batting and muslin. Above the fabric collage is a layer of netting. I used the netting to help hold the free-floating fabric scraps in place; also utilized was a large quantity of safety pins. Using a variegated thread I machine quilted a continuously moving geometric pattern. To protect the outer raw edges I added a binding made from a rust colored, cotton fabric. A hand stitched label was secured to the back along with a hanging sleeve. Tiny House Village, in its completed state, measures 17” x 21 1/2”.
This is my abstract interpretation of a tiny house village.
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.
Best wishes for a wonderful day!
