"I See Rings of
Friendship" • 15" x 16"
Kaye: "When I made this art piece I had hoped it would be
embellished with words and beads and lightly paint streaked. I had also hoped
to add an irregular edge and a stain-stitched binding. I love words and would
love to see them expressed on the front of this quilt. I had hoped it would
sing and instead it has been silent. The poor thing has hung on my wall for about
a year and a half."
Terrie: "Because the quilt sandwich was already layered
with fusible batting, I did not separate the layers to transform this UFO,
fearing I would distort the quilt top. I turned the quilt top onto each of its
four sides seeking ideas to transform this predominately dark quilt to a more
colorful unique art quilt. I enhanced the already fused fabric rings by adding
colorful fused triangles and hole-punched fused fabric circles. To reduce the
harsh white fabrics, I shortened this area with markers and water soluble wax
pastels. I added a traditional binding to complete this art quilt."
