I had very few of these colors in my stash of fabric. I was about to paint some fabric when I noticed that I had all of the colors in my wool roving stash. I decided to felt the piece. I wanted to machine felt it, but I broke an attachment so I thought I would try my hand at nuno (wet)felting.
The felted piece was attached to a 12 by 12 inch square of felt. I then beaded and stitched with perle cotton. This is probably the most embellished piece I have ever constructed!!
You can see how I did the nuno felting on my blog, Crazy for Fiber. Here is a detail shot.
We are twelve quilt artists who embarked on an art challenge together. We're from different places throughout the world and our artistic styles vary, but we share a love of art quilting and a desire to play, experiment, learn, and grow.
For four years (2007-2011), we each made a 12x12 inch quilted art piece on a designated theme or palette. See our Theme Series and our Colorplay series.
For the 2012 Series, we changed things a bit and made rectangular pieces, 20x12 inches with roughly 10 weeks between each challenge. As before, we had a designated theme for each challenge.
We shared our process, progress, and results on this blog. It remains a key record of our rich collaboration.
