Tuesday's Tile - Peeling Back the Layers

Quilter's Tile - Layers
8" x 8"

How many things can be done to a piece of fabric?  Like the layers of our lives, this fabric has been  changed as each layer has been added on. (Here paint is scraped across the fabric leaving unequal areas of paint.)

Over a commercially printed fabric, marks were made with fabric markers, designs were stamped, and paint was applied.  Each layer makes either subtle or major changes.

At the sewing machine, free-motion quilting adds another dimension. Over this, additional strips were added by fusing or stitching.

Metallic pieces were fused on. Words were added with fabric markers.

Just as we change each day by the situations in our lives, this fabric also has been changed. 
Maybe for the better, maybe not.

Layers and layers, added on.
