STILL LIFE ON THE TILES  36" x 48"  2003     Back to Gallery  

       

A still life picture was 'painted' by bonding fabric circles onto a foundation layer. Textural stitching, onto a cotton batting, helped to hold down the individual shapes and add visual interest. 

Fused appliqué, machine piecing and quilting

*An interest in pointillist paintings made me want to try to paint a still life with fabric circles. Although a finished piece in itself, I decided (heaven knows why!) to cut it up and reset it in tile formation.
