Catherine Whall Smith . . . considers the fabric dots – Studio Update #1.

Even though I purchased the red with white dot fabric to be used as a background design, the more I looked at it the more I realized that the evenly spaced dots would form a perfect vertical line on my new studio piece shown below. Here is what it looks like so far;

At this point there is alot of hand applique to be done to properly attach the curvy dotted fabric (shown above) that I’ve started to use in my pieces related to our bones.

A fabric with lots of big black dots will be cut into squares with a single dot in it – like this shown on the left;

I usually let the fabric inform it’s placement in my art. Rather than me coming up with a design and them finding the correct fabric. I’m always interested in creating eye movement across the surface of the quilt – moving from left to right, etc.

Please look for future up-dates as this piece continues to GROW! at
