Statement: Straight out of my sketchbook, this Weed deserved to be Stitched Together with a background of cotton previously used in a silk transfer dyeing process and cut-away fabric pieces for a frame.

Size: 33″ x 27″

Materials: Hand dyed (Frieda Anderson), silk transfer dyed and commercial cottons, fusible web, cotton batting, polyester and rayon threads, chenille yarn.

Techniques: Appliques were fused to the background and layered with batting and stabilizer, then partially quilted. Next the border was fused and the yarn was added before the backing was stitched pillowcase style. Lastly, the quilting was finished.
