            Figs: Drawn to Stitch

 15” X 12”

2007

Statement: Inspired by the article “drawn to Stitch” by Melanie Testa (Quilting Arts magazine April/May 2007). It was fun learning to sketch with the sewing machine, creating continuity through design repetition and shading through stitching and the use of layers of tulle.

Materials/Techniques: Thread sketching, tulle overlays, applique, machine quilting, embroidery, beading.
