"Farewell Toast to Winter"

This week I finished two more art quilts and today listed one of them, "Farewell Toast to Winter," on  This was a fun and challenging work to execute.  Instead of traditional batting, I used stiff interfacing because I knew that the dense thread drawing would tend to pucker and would need a strong stabilizer.  That choice became the major challenge because the interfacing creates lines where it is bent.  Instead of this being a negative, it yielded an opportunity for further thread embellishment and texture.  Here are some photos of the piece.
