Barbara McT's scribbling attempts
This is the first challenge I have ever participated in as a Fiber Artist! This piece is simply an attempt at scribbling and I think the machine got the better of me! I prefer to use a couching foot with the feet dogs up and just go for it. I did lower the feed dogs and I did have a challenge to keep the stitching looking decent. I used colored markers and raw edge fabric and black cotton thread on muslin. The binding is a piece of ombre. I will be submitting my works of art in a 6" square. I recently saw an exhibit of art of 5" square boxes and that size intrigued me and resonated with me.
