I'm prototyping a new piece for a show I'm participating in that I need to turn in to the gallery next Saturday.
I'm working with a theme of the history, comfort and nostalgia behind fabric/vintage quilts and juxtaposing that with traditional ornate jewelry shapes. Aside from the silhouettes I will be doing some stitch work, layering and possibly embroidery to accent the shapes of the jewels/ beads etc that are not present in this form.
The prototype is just from one piece of fabric but I will be using vintage quilt blocks as the base for the final piece, and potentially use the remainder as a small wall hanging that will accompany the necklace.
I'm so afraid to cut into the quilt blocks, they are so beautiful! I don't want to mess up and destroy them!
