As I pondered passion, several different interpretations came to mind. In the end, I decided to go with a more titillating, tongue in cheek view. I cut strips of silk charmeuse which I wove into a pattern on a white silk background. I machine quilted with sensuous curves. I see the silk strips as representing a perfectly made bed.
I used red silk painted fabric to make rose petals. I fused two pieces together. I created three dimensional petal shapes from the fused silk. They were sewn to the background with a small bead. Here is a closeup
So, there you have it, satin sheets and rose petals, ready for a night of passion. You can see more details on my blog.
