Sea and Sky


Size: 16½” x 13¼”


Our Fast Friday Fabric Challenge that started this year called for a predominance of blue, with black, white and one other color permitted. Since I had, a while ago, gathered some black and white fabrics, and I always have plenty of blues, I got a good start on this piece, until I found that the sparkly organza overlay somehow got cut at the bottom, and I had to piece another scrap on top and hand-sew it in.

I found the larger pattern of the black and white fabric to be too stark as it was, so I mixed some blue and black ink into water and dyed the pieces, with a bit more blue applied to the edges. The only added color would be the bit of silver in the sky with their “reflections” of the sparkles in the water.
