I am still thinking about fabric chenille, or a version of it, anyway, and experimenting with a few things.
My idea this week was to make 9 pieces of fabric "chenille", each 6 inches square. When I am finished each square will be mounted on a 6" x 6" stretched canvas. All 9 pieces could be hung together, or displayed individually, or in groups of 2, 3, 4 or 6. I selected and sewed each stack of fabric individually to develop as much variety as possible. I then washed everything, roughed up the surface with my fingers and dried them flat. I brushed some fabric paint on the wet fabric to add more variety and blend corners.
All nine pieces displayed together as one image.
Three pieces displayed together, with the center piece turned.
Or, two pieces together, both turned.
The horizontal orientation makes an image that reminds me of a landscape with layered clouds - a little bit like the sunset we saw last night.
