Quilter's Tile - Wisdom or Gold?
8" x 8"
©2011 Sharon V. Rotz
Today's tile combines a variety of techniques. In the background of the piece, I've used Shiva Artist's Paintstiks over texture plates and Dye-na-Flow paints to vary the color of the fabric. I then took the fabric to my machine and added some decorative stitches using metallic thread. (Some of the over 200 stitches that my machine will do and I usually never use. What great options, I need to expand on this.)
For the writing, I dropped the feed dogs and machine quilted the words.
To finish off this tile, I went green and used recycled items. The borders strips were strips from old ties and the buttons cut from an old suit coat.
