24" x 40"

Today, I am again looking at the details that add to life and energy to a project. In "Dappled", I strayed away from one large piece of fabric and divided the composition into small parts. These small parts were then stitched together to form the completed piece.
I thought of connecting the sections with beads, a more common choice, but felt that I wanted to go with something more substantial. Off to the hardware store I went and came home with metal washers. I used these washers stitched on with black perle cotton thread to join sections of my quilt.
Other quilt sections were joined with narrow strips of leather that I sewed to the fabric and then tied.
I think the unusual elements add interest to my project so I am happy with the result. I like the open areas that allow the light (or wall surface) to come through.
Have you tried any unusual elements in your projects? Were you happy with the effect?
