Illustration Friday - blanket



cotton fabric, hand-dyed wool thread, cotton thread, acrylic ink, printed mulberry paper, embossed cotton rag paper, nori paste and acrylic paint on 6" x 6" stretched canvas

Not my favorite word as a fiber artist. However, I made an abstracted version of "patchwork" with various-sized squares of heavily-embossed paper and used a fabric that's "blanketed" with words as the background.

I love the way you used the embossed paper. It makes me think of exquisite trapunto work.
