My fabric stash contains a lot of black and white fabrics...much of it contains busy prints which often don't play well with others. So finding just the right ones to highlight white prints on black took time. Ultimately the idea transformed into this unusual approach where black prints were also placed on white prints.
I prefer simple, uncomplicated designs where just a few motifs do the job of moving the eye around the piece. Hopefully that was accomplished in this newest work.
I don't keep track of how much time is spent on each piece, I won't skimp on the design or process just to finish quickly. However, overall since I am selling my work and want to keep the price reasonable, my pieces aren't large. It's still an education process for buyers to understand what a positive impact fiber brings to a room, sound deadening qualities for one, not to mention the tactile and warm appearance of the fiber itself.
