On the Edge: I Was Here
Thinking of the theme "On the Edge" brought the idea of graffiti to mind.
Graffiti "artists" work under cover, do not use their name, only a "tag"
In spite of their, quite often very innovative paintings, what they do is illegal.
Techniques are : raw edge applique, stitched down.
I used hand dyed fabrics, accents with pens and pencils, letters stencilled on.
Machine quilted making it look like a brick wall.
