BOUNCE, a new piece in my CIRCLE series

April 18, 2014

Just completed, this little circle study is composed of various hand-dyed cotton curved strips.  A strip of snow discharged black was inserted half way through.  Then additional blue strips were inserted to separate it into blocks.


I added a circle of three layers of netting.  Then I quilted the background and the circle with blue, white and silver threads.  But the circle was not bold enough.  I lightened it with tons of silver and white thread. More stitching with a dark variegated thread on the blocks.  


I call it "Bounce", as it looks like the circle has depressed the line of blocks.  It's fun to do these little projects.  


Now on to a big one.  I've already got a sketch and a pile of possible fabrics in browns, golds, oranges and fuschias!  I can't wait to get started.


P.S.  Bounce is heading for a show of members' work at the Blue Line Gallery in Roseville, CA.  On display July 17 through August 16, 2014.
