Results of Spraying Silk

Susan has combined several techniques into this one fabulous piece. Her silk has been pieced into the smaller quilted piece on the left which the beads run across. The other pieced fabric and the entire background are fabrics that she created using soy wax batik.

Jamie's piece was made using silk habotai that had been sprayed with several colors of green and blue. This piece was inspired by a trip to Tacoma and seeing many Dale Chihuly glass baskets.

Sue Anne created this piece by first masking the large circles with newspaper and spraying the silk with a very pale blue paint. She then masked the blue and sprayed the circles with yellow. The orange was sprayed on using a petal newspaper stencil. The last color - green for the leaves - was sprayed when all but the leaves were masked off. The piece is hand quilted with a running stitch and seed stitch.
