New Fiber Art in Progress – Scraps to Something More

I’ve been busy in the studio. I started a new fiber art wall hanging.

It all starts with this: pile of fabric scraps turns into a quilt.

And, after two days of work on these scraps, I create the main elements. In this case it’s an elongated teardrop shape. I make them each as individual elements, making sure there is enough contrast between them. Then I place them on the background fabric. Though I’m not ready to show the entire quilt and it’s really just in the beginning stages, here’s a sneak peak of one area:

There’s still quite a bit of work to be done. I have to stitch more color into the background and into the elements. I’ll keep sharing with you as I go forward and I hope you enjoy the ride!

Just started stitching!
