Fiberactions "Stretch" challenge. Click on the link to see other group members' interpretations of the word. Since I've been working a lot recently with digital images on fabric, I decided to stretch the boundaries of what I could do with a single digital image.
My challenge quilt is made of small pieces of natural fiber fabrics (cotton, linen, denim, raw silk) that were fused onto sheets of freezer paper and run through my digital printer. Before printing, the fabric pieces had been soaked/dyed in a coffee/tea blend, dried, then soaked in Bubble Jet Set and dried. After printing, I tore the pieces off the sheets and rearranged them on the foundation cloth.
This is the first of my Fiberactions challenge quilts to be framed, but I'm thinking I'll do likewise with the previous quilts. Each one is so unique, that I think they'll make a wonderful grouping when they're all finished, early in 2012.
