|High Tide l is large, about 42" X 79".
It was shown in Art Quilts Xll at the Chandler Center for the Arts in Arizona.
|It started small with a sketch in my art journal. I traced over the sketch to make a black line drawing that could be enlarged with an opaque projector. The lines were drawn with chalk, which was a bit of a mess. More lines were added later to break up the shapes.|
|It was the first time I tried a raw-edge technique, leaving about 1/4" of the edges loose. This creates a nice wavy raised texture, but requires added attention while stitching so the presser foot doesn't get hooked on an edge.|
|A smaller, related piece can be seen here.|
