Having given the piece a name, I realized the majority of the fabrics I used to construct the piece had dots in them! So to take the idea further, I appliquéd more dots of various sizes to add further detail to the piece, and stitched around the outside edge with rayon embroidery thread using a narrow blanket stitch. Although difficult to see, the 1/4″ binding is also a dotted fabric. Finished size: 12.5″ x 17″.
I love using dots and often will pile on several in a single project. It gives some of the repetition I find pleasing. I like the way your appliqued dots rise sort of like soap bubbles. It’s a good effect.
Reminds me of Joy Laking’s “Starrynight” paintings
