PURPLE AND PLEATED

23”w x 30”h

Price: $450.00

I wanted to do a piece with lots of beading on it so I started with a fat quarter of a multi-colored batik and began pleating and folding small pieces of various commercial fabrics and some of my own hand-dyed fabrics onto that base, ironing them down flat as I went along. I zigzag stitched them down, added some borders and then did lots of quilting in the background only. I beaded only on the folded and pleated fabrics, as well as a single row of seed beads down the edge of the side borders. I love how the beads compliment the hand-dyed and batik fabrics. This piece has sleeves on both ends so it can be hung upside down if you like.
