Rusty WIP

Here's a look at the basic layout of the rust piece I'm working on.  I love the rust dyed fabric, but it is really hard on machine needles!  I've got some plans for the larger black areas, although this photo doesn't show the rust in them.  The close up below gives you a better indication of the wonderful colour and texture that is showing on the black.  It almost looks like old leather.  Really cool!

    1. Thanks Janet. I'm enjoying the process, from dyeing the fabric to planning and sewing the art quilt. Looking forward to the quilting part to come soon.
