|River Quilt Scene in Pieces|
So far the raw edge is only the palm tree in the upper right (which is true raw without web underneath but I think it's good for a Palm to fray a bit - more realistic that way), the cardinal and the blue bird, oh and the nest when I fuse that on. Truly the more I see it where DD put it the more I like it. I'm also thinking about hiding a panther face in the shadows. I have a cat face that is about the right size, but it's black with wonderfully glowing yellow eyes... A face in the shadows would be shadowed though right?
This little wonder is getting heavy too. The muslin runs throughout the bottom as I mentioned, then the forest green fusions in the background of the top third, and all those little pieces. Along the top especially towards the left you can see where I'm allowing the sunshine to peak through the trees. What do you think that? It seemed natural that in looking across a river you would see the sunlight like that.
And hey what do you think about binding? I was thinking scrappy binding so it would flow around the quilt in blues, tans, blues to greens and back? But that I'm not sure. Since the quilt is supposed to be connecting many other art quilts. What do you think others will do with their binding?
