I hope I put this in the right place  Smiley

I've recently become enamored with art quilts and knew I had found my new love when I saw Jude Hill's work on Spirit Cloth. This is my first go at anything like this. I started by choosing my fabrics (and being toile obsessed, it's toile-heavy), and then my colors. I love pink and dark grey together, and adore gold metallic thread, so those choices were easy.

I love mixed media, so couldn't just leave it at cloth and thread. There's also metal, paper (a bit from an 1880's edition of Paradise Lost. I collect them, so I've got tons), and a feather. I wanted a really raw, organic feeling to offset the fussiness of the toile, so I singed the edges of the strip and stopped myself from lining up my stitches perfectly (which I usually obsess over).

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but thought I might eventually incorporate it into a larger piece.
