I'm very excited about my latest project -- I call these little works "Ornamentals." Each measures 5" by 7", and each is a different framed silhouette fused to a background and bordered by a third colorful fabric. They are then outline-quilted and edge-stitched, using Perle Cotton #5 to add color and presence to the edge. There will be five of these pieces in the series, and they can be purchased for $25 each (contact me at diane@DEsignedbyDianeEvans.com). They will also be for sale at the Adirondack Museum Fabric and Fiber Festival on Saturday, September 13th, along with many other beautiful pieces of textile art by the women of ARTAA (Adirondack Regional Textile Artists' Alliance); I'm very fortunate to be a member of this group of very talented ladies. Come to the show on the 13th and see what we do!
