Earth Study

Earth Study
8 1/2" x 11"

I'm creating small works on which to practice free-motion machine quilting. FMQ is kind of like riding a bike or playing the piano; you remember how but it takes a lot of practice to get good at in once more. For Earth Study, I used my hand-dyed fabrics and assorted threads.

For added textural elements, I often fringe the edges of some fabrics and leave a few thread tails hanging
