Weekly Art Challenge Week 11

Continuing on my theme of interpreting the Palm Tree I have chosen some fabric for the tree that I hand dyed and patterned and was left over from a new small Art Quilt I have made for a challenge called "Earth" in my 3Squared group in New Zealand.  The Reveal is next weekend so I will show the quilt I made after the meet up wish I was going along with my quilt.  I have posted mine this time.

Week 10 Weekly Art Challenge

I am catching up I am up to Week 10 now.  I used my hand patterned background fabric and a reddish hand dye with some patterning.

I am having a busy week catching up with friends and researching for my Course.  I am interested in natural dyeing too so pulling some material out to start having a further try.  Doing a little sun printing too just for fun.

Weekly Art Project Week 9

Thank you for the feedback from bloggers and friends on my little palm tree series.  I have decided to keep making versions of the Palm tree for awhile longer.  This is my Week 9 of the Weekly Art Project.

Weekly Art Project Week 8

Well I have made it Week 8 is based still on my palm tree photo.  I now have four pieces based on this theme all 8in by 8in.

I am wondering if I will continue making more of these or change the theme or approach to the theme.  Something for me to ponder.  I submitted my textile assignment which was all on yarn formation and creation I found it very interesting on Monday to UK.

This one is also based on my hand dyed and patterned fabric (Ironbark Arts with Ali George).  I have not quilted the last two pieces because I am pondering how I want to display them e.g. one quilt; individual pieces - I am not sure!
