Yellow Stars and Moon
Well, it's back home and back to the studio again! Our drive home was uneventful (the drive to Denver was problematic - slow - on account of weather and bad roads and required an alternate, longer route of travel). It was a great trip, nevertheless. It is nice to be able to walk back into the studio and pick up where I left off with my work!
I've cut the yellow hand dyed organza into various sized circles and have fused them in scattered locations around the surface of the quilt. I am happier now and feel I can move forward with the next phase of screen printing.
As before, I take some time to audition placement of the screen printing. I toyed with making some new screens - I felt this piece might really benefit from something taller. I also contemplated fusing a raw edge applique tree or something ...... but then I ended up deciding to stick with the tree screens - keeping with my series. I hope the proportions come out OK. We'll see . . . .
