Cow On A Fence: Art Piece # 69

Cow On A Fence, AP 69

During September, 2019, I attended a class led by Sue Benner. While there I experimented with fabric and fusible backing. A variety of fiber art pieces took shape during my investigative adventures. This project was one of the specimens created. The composition consists of three layers of raw edged fabrics. A layer of fusible backing was attached to the wrong side of each. All three layers were then fused together.

Before adding a sandwich of batting and backing I attached a teal-colored border printed with multi-colored circles. The entire project was quilted with straight-line quilting using color coordinated threads.

The name Cow On A Fence was chosen by one of my friends. The cow is represented by the off-white fabric printed with green dots. The fence was constructed from a fabric with multi-colored spindles bordered by olive green top and bottom rails. In its completed state, the small art quilt measures 12 1/4” x 15”.

A Brush With Copper, Art Piece # 68

This item was created during a class with Sue Benner. The project began with a fused grouping of multi-colored fabrics. The raw edged fabric shapes were overlapped by at least 1/4” to avoid gaps. The combined composition was stamped using a stencil and copper colored metallic fabric paint.

The manipulated quilt top was then fused to a layer of cotton batting. A fabric backing completes the sandwich. Straight lines of machine stitched quilting were added using a variegated thread. The fiber art piece was finished with a binding, label and hanging sleeve. In its finished form the small fabric art piece measures 12” x 12 1/4”.

The inspiration for naming my project came from the stenciled copper image.
