Do you Audition your quilts.?
Most of my quilts need an audition… and in this sample I wanted to see if I could create a feeling of fish in water, behind the '"Big Fish"
I have layered pieces of hand dyed muslin over the top of a fish…. and quilted over it.
I've manipulated the muslin, adding shading in the form of different colors…
But I've been consistent with the thread….. (nothing fancy I don't have another color to match)
I now know I can't add a piece like the light strip in front of the fish…. it's distracting… and I loose the outline of the fish.
Up to date I've sandwiched the three layers of the quilt, now I'm cutting out the images to go under the muslin.
