I took this picture while standing on a ladder in a very dimly lit room. It is a miracle it even turned out this good. I call this "Planetary Motion". I machine quilted and then added some embroidery, using a Melody Johnson varigated pearl cotton. I've tried to use this embroidery thread before and it never showed to it's best advantage.
But on the dye painted fabric the thread looks fabulous and makes everything look so much more interesting. The variations in the dye show up more. Gosh, I like this.
More interesting little x's. This was fun to work on and it will have a hanging pocket added during Project Runway--if I can do two things at once. It may NOT be possible. On Thursday I will hang "Planetary Motion" at the library. They are really nice to me there and let me hang my quilts behind the Lending Desk--everyone in town gets to see them.
