What would happen if you take metallic type fabric and create designs to resemble metalwork? Black wrought iron is seen everywhere in Spain~in ornate lampposts...on rose-covered balconies...majestic gates...and the heavy door handles on large wooden doors!
"Wrought Iron" (2014) is 7 1/2" x 9", Rayon on cotton, from the series, "Visions of Spain". In this small wholecloth quilt~the design is "sketched" using rayon thread and the machine on a single piece of fabric (which was layered with batting and a backing fabric), as you would with a pencil on paper.
A hanging sleeve is added to the back for displaying. As a Free Bonus gift, a small slat with two holes is included (Can be hung with 2 pins or small nails~not included). Other options for displaying textiles pieces include shadow box frames or mounting on canvas. Professional framers, experienced with preserving and displaying textiles, can be helpful with these and other ideas. (Canvas is not included, for display only.)
For Collectors of unique, original art or Art Lovers looking for a special, unusual gift!
