The exposed batting was appealing. Yet I was feeling this internal tug to bind it all in - the traditional quilt look. (Must...not...comply...struggle...)
The chair image is from photos taken on Jacksonville Beach. I loosely painted the life guard chair on a background of sunprinted muslin.
I layered the muslin and left the raw edges to blend in as I played with the machine stitching.
It has that ragged, sun-beaten, wind-worn feel of fabric exposed extensively outside.
To stop obsessing about what next - I stitched it into an IKEA box frame.
Liking the feeling of closure to finishing off that piece I started on binding the little quilt from my Mother's Day efforts.
