Corner Art

The thread-painted butterfly is an experiment with "corner art". The idea is to mount only the butterfly and not the quilted background piece. The thread painting was done on water soluble stabilizer and the wings have wire couched on the back to give shaped. The piece is far more successful as shown, it looks rather wimpy mounted in the corner on its own. However, I think 'corner art' has potential and I hope to pursue the idea in the future.

  3. This piece needs to be enlarged to see all the beautiful details. The mauve makes the green almost neon - great choice of colours. I love the quilting in the background. Not at all wimpish!

  4. Can't add much to the three comments above - I agree with them all. DO carry on and make some more pieces like this.

  5. I will have to see this piece in person to understand how it is made. I really like your use of three different patterns to quilt the background.

  7. I'd not come across the idea of 'corner art' before - I hope we are going to see more in the future!

  8. Wonderful things come out of experiments so don't give up on this idea. I love the colours together as they really stand out and it doesn't look wimpish at all. Lovely quilting.
