Flotsam/Jetsam, Texture Challenge Quilt finish.
The texture challenge was a good stretch for me. I wanted to keep this project light and uncluttered.
I started with a canvas made of squares of Kona cotton solid, smooth, and Robert Kaufman's Essex linen blend, rougher. And that got hand quilted, a start on texture.
Running stitches, French knots and cross stitches were added. Then I added shredded laces and fabric scraps rolled and couched down for a look of some odds and ends you might find washed up on the beach. And maybe the cross stitches are little star fish?
So that's my take on texture stuff you might find on a beach.
I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with and to more challenges,
