Ragged and Black

Ragged and Black

Ragged and Black is a lyric from a Joni Mitchell song. I like to work with a title right from the start when I’m making a quilt and these words seemed to fit my crow character perfectly. The original image was a painting I made using gouache and Indian ink on watercolour paper. The image was scanned and digitally printed on a wide format printer using fibre reactive dyes. I free motion quilted the printed, wholecloth image and added detail with fabric painting and digitally embroidered text.
