Design Concept

Branches began with a very loose hand drawn sketch of organic shapes that looked like branches. It was drawn directly on the touch screen of my Microsoft Surface Design computer. I added horizontal lines that looked like horizon lines in a landscape. Next, I added two perfect circles that are not perfectly concentric. These were placed a little off center in the composition. All the lines cross, so foreground and background become ambiguous. I made my black lines heavy, so they took on a kind of stained-glass look. I turned my line drawing into separate shapes and filled them with color. I photographed one of the fabrics I hand painted with dye many years ago and used the image to fill some of the shapes. I moved the image of the fabric around in the various shapes and when I liked the way the whole composition looked, I turned it into a bitmap, designed matching strips for the binding and sent the image to Fabrics on Demand to be printed with fiber reactive dye. Many different colors of polyester and acrylic thread were used in the free-motion quilting.
