Delicate Arch #1

Delicate Arch #1

This piece measures 22″ h x 34 1/2″W. It was constructed in my method of appliquéing fabric to a red background piece of fabric.  Using this red fabric as a base seems to make the piece come alive. I have used hand painted fabric along with commercial fabric. I chose to bind this piece with what is called a knife edge binding. The knife edge is similar to a facing on a garment.
Out of all the National Parks we had to choose from, I chose Arches National Park because I grew up in Moab. My family mode there when I was a child . My parents still live on the same piece of property on Spanish Valley Drive.
