I have always been fascinated by stained glass and mosaics. I have done some major mosaic pieces but had to give it up as it was making me sick. I wanted to try my hand at stained glass, but that didn't work for me either. With all the gorgeous batik fabrics out there, I have developed a passion for them and decided that if I couldn't do mosaics or stained glass, then why not take advantage of the fabric choices that "look" like stained glass. That is what I decided to do and this is the result. My pattern was printed and taped to a light source and then traced to the background. Each piece is individually cut and fused to the background to fit the space it needed to fill (pretty much the way you would cut each individual piece of glass). I used black cotton fabric cut on the bias to create the "leading" effect. This piece is now a wall hanging. As you can see, when it is held up to a light source, the fabrics "glow" like they are glass. Pretty cool effect, but the fabrics used really make the difference. I've done several of these type pieces now and love making them.
