Textile Painting.......Class Samples

I had time to squeeze out one more class sample for Saturday's class

I need something that I can use for my Machine Quilting Demo in class...

Fabric has been painted...
Now I am ready to audition border fabrics

I like the black/gray color in this border fabric...

Unlike the black and very white fabrics I usually use.

For some reason, this piece didn't like the stark whites & blacks.
It required more of the blackish gray shades.

I am listening...

So, I pulled out my stash of B & W:

I sorted out all of the very white & blacks...

Kept the black & gray fabrics...

The border treatment does not distract from the central focal point, and is still interesting.

I will use this piece in class to demo a few machine quilting tricks I have up my sleeves

Just so you know I don't do everything bold and over the top:

Here is my very subtle class sample of leaves

Yes, I can do subtle too!

Look what is growing out behind the Thread Shed


They are larger than life...

The STAR shaped center is so interesting

We are headed for a Farm Auction in the morning...
I need to hit the hay ~

Good Night...
