Carrying on from my Sue Benner class post, our third piece was a Cut and Collage. After all that fusing and cutting, each of us had a number of small left over fused fabrics that we could free hand cut into small squares, rectangles, and strips. Using parchment paper as a base, we arranged these cut leftovers into a collage that was pleasing and balanced. Applied an iron and presto, the pieces all stuck together as one and were now ready to apply to a background fabric. I created several. Here are two of them.
I think these two, along with several others, will be used to create a wearable item; maybe a vest or a bag…hmm will have to think about that. I did another piece in some different colours and liked the look of it on a hand dyed background my friend graciously gave to me. This one is going to hang on the wall just as soon as I get it quilted.
and had to proportionally enlarge it. Hmm… I was running out of leftovers so the piece could not be too much larger. I decided to try for something just a bit bigger. Here is how it looks right now.
Still needs some work on it, (like the palm trees) but that shouldn't take long. Another piece for the quilting pile. Now I just have to finish the piece I was working on in my second session at Asilomar.
