canvasstripes

I have just about finished the paint rag collage. I fused the dyed fabric strips to the black canvas. Next, I collaged the cut up pieces, arranging and rearranging, until I was happy. I glued them down and when the glue was dry, I did simple straight line quilting, using 4 different colors of thread.

I have not finished the edges yet, but I will probably not do much as I have used black felt as the batting so I think a simple zigzag will finish it off. Here is a detail.

Tomorrow, I want to make a time line for all my looming deadlines. I am really excited to get to work on some of the ideas that I have.
