Petrified Wood Series: Fabric Design

Developing a new series.

The next phase of fabric design for this piece is block printing.
I chose hand carved blocks in leaf and bark textures.
Below is the printed fabric.
I layered the fabric with batting, Peltex and backing and did simple quilting lines.

Then, I cut the quilt up into 2.5 x 3.5" rectangles, which I finished with a zig-zag, followed by a dip into some interference acrylic paint.
These small pieces are intended as the foundation for the petrified wood chips.

More on this piece later. . . .

Meanwhile - I have to get some other work ready for ARTfusion in Bigfork, MT. They have sold a third piece of my work this summer and I need to replenish - so off to label and make hanging systems for more . . .
