Quilt

This is the first piece I've finished since the surgery. I'd pieced it before, so I would have some hand sewing to do while I sat around-not an easy thing for me to do. I was going to call it Recovery, but my friend has Recovery 1 and 2 from after her back surgery. Given the technique used, I think it will become Scratching the Surface. Any ideas friends?

The main part is a monoprint that I did on a glass plate by scratching into the paint with one of those grooved tools from the hardware store. I cut it into 3 pieces and used a hand dyed fat quarter than I bought somewhere. It seemed to need beads-doesn't everything? Then I couched metallic threads down and finally machine quilted it.

That is a winner for sure, Sandy. Very nice technique.

I love it Sandy and I think "Scratching the Surface"is a great name for it.

Oh, very cool! I've read about this monoprint technique, and now you've inspired me to try it.

It's a very successful piece sandy. I think you can call it 'Recovered'.
