This will be the last post about my Empty Spools class, I promise. As I noted earlier, everyone in my translucent fabrics class did unique work. Here are details of some of their products. I asked, and received, permission to take photos.
The tiny squares connected with hand sewn dark thread give this piece such rhythm. Little buttons and charms are caught in organza pockets.
Strong colors and jagged diagonal lines make for a dramatic piece. Although a primary color scheme is used, the muted reds and blues give depth.
The dramatic center is highlighted by those fringed raw edges, and the “flaw” in the one piece of blue fabric under the yellow square helps center your eye.
Ice dyed cotton and silk organza brought to class make for mysterious effects. The crosses are used sporadically throughout.
Finally, here’s where my “bubbles” piece is as of mid March. I began this at Empty Spools and continued working on it at home. It will be mostly fused, and probably hand and machine quilted. I’m finding the silk organza to be a bit frisky to work with.
