Fall is in the air and textile design ideas are sifting through my mind.  The last stitch on this latest piece was completed over a month ago.  Call it lazy, call it crazy, or call it busy, life seems to take over at times.

This piece is called Peach Abstract.  I started with a design created using Adobe Illustrator which was then printed onto fabric. To enhance the design and to create transparency, I used different color of threads closely stitched together.  There is a small amount of peach color in the design. The background repeats this color and pulls the pieces together. The geometric stitching repeats the angles in the original design.

I am not sure I like the window effect of the inner piecing and may rework this at a future time.

Hope you enjoy.
