Well, I've decided I'm not really an 'art quilter' and I've told them I'm going to stop coming to the Art bee meetings. Instead, I think I'm going to join the Stashbuster's bee they're about to start... I hope they pick an evening for meetings that will work with my schedule.
Anyway, there's the last of our three art quilts we've been passing around:
Since I'm not coming back, this one's my own blue fabric, the dyed denim on the bottom, and two other people have had it the last two months, adding the fish, corals, bubbles, and seaweed. The detail is incredible, I especially love the rock in the lower right corner and the fish with the teeth!
I'm not sure where it should go from here. Other than adding some trapunto to the fish shapes (and that'd be a challenge to do with the denim, I think) the only other things I can think of to do would be add some sand colored fabric to the bottom - and tie on some more shells? Add more beads for eyes and such?
Have any of you ever made a 3D fabric frame, with that stiff interfacing they use for fabric bowls? I think the difficult part would be the corners. Any ideas?
