Art Quilt #4


This quilt was an exercise in the use of a couching technique, gimping cord and foot, and variegated thread. While I like the look of this quilt, it's much less substantial than its 3 companion pieces. Click on the picture to see the detail. 11" x 14"

I think I'd like to try couching something other than gimping cord and a satin stitch. Maybe I should ask my sister-in-law Chris H for some bits of her fabulous yarns and play around with some things like that.

One of the wonderful lines from "Sunday in the Park with George" is "Work is what you do for others - Art is what you do for you." I've had fun with with art recently, but let the work resume. I have a December 5th deadline for a t-shirt quilt.
