Design concept

This is part of a series of small works in which my process is very much like doodling with fabric, i.e. the design was developed spontaneously, working directly on the background with bits of fabric and thread. The dark background fabric was hand painted with fiber reactive dye. Small scraps of hand-dyed fabric, left over from other projects, were laid on the background and stitched with various colors of thread. The embroidered composition was surrounded with a lighter colored hand-painted border. The entire composition was quilted in a freeform design.
