French Curves
French Curves

This is a new piece I recently completed for a members challenge at Visions Museum.    Curves/waves/shoreline — interpreted by this would-be mathematician using actual and invented French Curves. Remember those from geometry or drafting or drawing classes fifty years ago?

These mini-quilts are fun to compose and make; this one has a paper background with inks and stitching; the curves themselves are batik fabric; the outline stitching is machine buttonhole; and there is stenciling over some of it, too.  Mixed-media rules!

  1. I like it. But it boggles the mind how you got everything to hold still while you stitched it, and how you convinced your machine to stitch w/out drawing or puckering!
