Waterworld


I wish I could interpret these challenges a little less than literally, but here it is.  I wanted to experiment with Lutradur and coloured a large piece with Tee-Juice markers. When put on the dark background the colour was lost so I fused two pieces of Lutradur together and then cut out the shapes with an electric needle that I bought years ago to cut templates ( Yeah, that long ago! LOL) Each individual piece is fused to the background and then sewn with a narrow free-motion zig-zag stitch.  The background is narrowly machine echo quilted.  The entire piece is only about 16" square.

What an interesting piece. I really like the lutradur against the dark background. Reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle!

This is really intriguing Pat. How did you ever manage to fit those pieces back together? It reminds me of a crackle glass sphere. I don't see much (if any) color though. Did it all disappear, or does it just not show in the picture? Nice work,
Cherie

Very cool.
It looks parched land during a drought to me.
I like the look of Lutradur, too.

Pat, this is stunning. Reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy's natural art (the dried river bed comes to mind). I can see a whole series developing from this piece! Way to go!
