28 inches X 16 inches
Torn commercial fabric
Permanent fabric marker shading
French knot embroidery
Couched yarn binding
This is my interpretation of this month's Interpret This photograph. I enjoyed this challenge because it was a landscape with lots of texture.
I tore all the fabric in this quilt with the exception of the rocks. I wanted the texture of the torn edge to be part of the quilt. In the quilting I used a lot of zig zag stitches to also add texture and in some cases shading.
I also layered small torn pieces on top to add to the texture and depth, machine quilting over the top and adding french knots.
The rocks at the waters edge were roughly cut and shaded with permanent fabric marker and then machine quilted, shading the bottom where they were under the waters edge.
Lastly the twine was added and couched into place .
To add to the texture, a yarn binding was added to the irregular border.
