Fibervision is having an exhibit at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center in Santa Barbara from May 28- June 22, 2014. The opening reception will be on Wednesday, June 4th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. If you're in town, please stop in for a visit. See the flyer below for all the details.
Here's a couple of close up shots of the quilting on one of my new pieces. It showcases the same "skylight" fabric that is used in the piece on the flyer above. Photos were manipulated, then printed on fabric. I also have a third design in progress that uses the same fabric.
I used plastic circle templates to help me quilt five sets of gradated circles, then I stippled around the outside to flatten the background.
Once the CPAC exhibit opens, I'll show you the entire quilt.
I LOVE color. It's so much fun adding layers of dye and paint to create fabric that is beautiful and unique. I often combine my hand painted fabric along with commercial and batik fabric. Sometimes, I even use the back side or add a layer of tulle on top to shift the color. In other words, I'll use whatever works best for each piece.
