Texture Texture Texture

This is the front and back of the page I just finished for Barb's Texture themed book for the new fabric book RR in my Fabric in Altered Arts Yahoo group. The front is somewhat of a crazy quilt but my idea at the time I started was to use several fabrics with different textures and then add 2 or 3 items with different textures to each area. Because of the chunky button on the bottom it did not scan very well and you can't see that each block is a different fabric. The darker one is actually a fabric that I thought was too dark and a sheer piece of fabric was added over it. I wanted some subtle color but not too bright. The metal button on the left hand side is not really that dark. It sure stands out in the scan! The back is just two pieces of fabric cut in strips and woven. I laid them on a piece of fusible stabilizer and after weaving pressed with a hot iron and used a buttonhole stitch around the edges. Another project finished and I am off to work on a travel page with a safari theme.

I'm really impressed by your woven fabrics. I'm going to have to try that. It's a beautiful piece.
