Don’t You Just Love Shibori

Well I certainly love it and this collection was on my current design wall but now that I am slowly rediscovering my stuff again it is time to move it to a temporary place so I can move the ‘wall’ to My New Room of Requirements. which I have just done.

On My Wall…still

Image

In a previous post I shared photos of a project that was up on my design wall which you can see here.

I thought at the time ‘ok you have been sat looking at this for ages, changing your mind and moving the pieces around, JUST GET ON WITH IT!’

So I shared the arrangement with the intention of doing just that…but guess what?

I still wasn’t really feeling it so I carried on looking at it for ages and moving the pieces around but I think this is it!On My Wall Still Shibori 1 by t r a c y f o x

The fabric is hand dyed shibori using purple instead of the traditional indigo blue. I tore up the original pieces and have played about with their arrangement. I really like the frayed edges and have been debating with myself how best to keep them visible.

So, I have decided to use temporary spray adhesive to apply the fabric pieces to a cotton background.

I will then sandwich it up with wadding and a backing.  I have imagined tons of different ways to stitch and quilt it but am going to go back to my original thoughts of simple curvy lines going horizontally across the piece.

I will hopefully get this basted today and if I get a move on may even start the stitching!
