"Denim Confetti" fabric mosaic, 14" x 5.5", made by Pam Geisel, April 2009
I made fabric pieces that I call fabric mosaics where I take small pieces of fabric, arrange them on a piece of fabric stabilizer, cover them with a piece of tulle (fine netting), then quilt the pieces down. I usually make abstract pieces but have done some representational art and I usually frame them but have sometimes pieced them into a larger art quilt.
"Denim Confetti" is a triptych (three pieces hanging together) made with blues and yellows. The blue thread is placed under the tulle and not stitches. The quilting is done with yellow thread.
