Well, it's been a month since I attended my Art Quilt Bee! This weekend, I've been working on the new piece of fabric I got. Last month, you may remember, I had a plaid fabric in Autumn colors, so I added a branch and corduroy fall leaves to it. This month, I traded for a turquoise satiny piece with a distinctly oriental feel. The member who got it first had added a deep red rice bowl with sequin rice (and if you look close, steam rising from it), and she also put a net table for the bowl to sit on.
Today, I added the vase on the right, with an orange bud and flower on a black stem. I was trying to make it look like a crystal vase, not sure if I succeeded or not!
I also made a pair of chopsticks, but I havent tacked them on yet. I can't decide if I like them there or not.
Also, there's at least another round with this fabric... I'll take it to them and we'll all trade again. I want to leave room for the third person who gets this piece to do something with it... so if they wanted to put a plate of egg rolls or... _?_ ... on the table under the rice bowl, there'd be space. Guess I'll take the chopsticks to the meeting unattached and just pass them with the fabric.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what was done with the blue-to-green dyed fabric I took... AND the plaid fabric I worked on last month. Wonder what they added under the leaves?
