Texture to "Finish" a Piece

I made this little art quilt from paint, Mul-tex, thread and batting.  But it was missing something.  It has texture from the gel medium and the threads, but it's still a little blah.

Enter Extreme Texture Technique!  I took some of my hand-dyed cheesecloth and wadded it up and draped it across the bottom.  Then I used my walking foot and a zigzag stitch to stitch it down.

I left some of it hanging over the binding.  Much better!


  1. I like the texture of the cheese cloth!

  2. Me too. I am a BIG fan of cheese cloth. Nice work!!

  3. The cheese cloth adds a really nice texture. The color is nice too!


We would love to hear from you and even better have some links to your work!
