Departure- Raven the Collector
For 'Departure', I chose to depart from the vertical format, & did horizontal instead. I also chose to use materials not as often used in quilts, such as fused glass & Friendly Plastic. My friend Mindy does fused glass & will often trow a few scraps in the kiln to give to me. I thread painted on wash-away stabilized then stitched the thread cabochon over 3 pieces of the glass in the upper left, to hold the glass in place. Other glass is stitched as a bead or button, or glued in place.
The Raven is all thread, starting with neon brights, then stitched over with blacks..to see more details check my own blog.
