Another Texture Study


Texture Study 2--Black
7" x 10"

When I was making arty clothing, I found that the best selling items were vests, jackets, and bags made out of a variety of black fabrics--no color, just the textures that the different fabrics or black-on-black prints produced.  So it was natural to follow up the white texture study I posted recently with this black one.   The background is a faux suede, and because I didn't want any more light or variety in it, I didn't quilt it.  I just quilted around the shapes and followed the curves in the brocade.  Instead of binding, I zig-zagged black rat tail cording in place.

It's very striking. I wish I could see it in person.

Scrumptous! And it photographs amazingly well. Seeing all the textures makes my fingers itch to touch it!

Again, not the same as seeing this up close and personal. Feeling very fortunate to have in my hot little hands.
