Here is what is developing.
When I hung the piece to see how it was developing, I liked it but it lacked a story and I knew there was a one hidden in it that need to be told so...
Out of my hand dyed fabric stash I selected a piece that might suggest a sunset sky, drafted a circle from brown craft paper to use as a pattern and then cut a circle from the hand dyed fabric. I then fused it to Heat-n-Bond Fusible Iron On Non- Woven Stabilizer* to give it stability. Next I cut a smaller circle from the quilt top so that it would overlap the edges of the hand dyed fabric circle and affixed the circle with satin stitching. And now, dah-dah, here is that element...
The story is beginning to develop--at least in my story telling mind. I plan on creating either an appliqued or a free motion embroidered element into the circle and linking it somehow into the mini-quilt that is set on netting, but that will be in the near future. As it develops, I will add pictures, but at the moment I have three other projects on the work table that are crying for my attention. Isn't that just the way it goes with artists--especially those who are also quilters?
* It might be worthwhile to note that the Heat-n-Bond Iron On Non-Woven Stabilizer is very soft and does not, even slightly, alter the hand of the fabric.
